Summary: Abstract: The association between capture success of stoats (Mustela erminea) and ship rats (Rattus rattus) and landscape-scale environmental predictors was explored
using trapping data from three stoat control areas located in podocarp/broadleaved
forest in New Zealand. Stoat capture success was higher at trap sites where a
rat was also captured at the same trap or a stoat was captured at a neighbouring
trap. Drier trap sites with good soil drainage and increased proximity to the
operational trapping boundary were also associated with increased stoat capture.
Rat capture success was higher at trap sites where a rat had been captured at a
neighbouring trap, and at trap sites that were on steeper ground, more easterly
facing and within forest habitat. Trap sites with generally poor soil conditions,
i.e. sites with lower soil calcium levels and wetter sites with poor drainage, and
increasing distance from the forest edge were also associated with increased
rat capture. There were highly variable relationships between rat and stoat
capture and landscape-scale environmental predictors between the three stoat
control areas. This could be due to differing topography, but also to the highly
correlated nature of many of the topographic, climate and habitat predictors.
Further research specifically designed to separate these effects should focus on
the variables identified as common between all stoat control areas in this study.
Additional investigations of whether rats captured in double trap sets act as
additional bait for stoats would have practical benefits for stoat control areas.
The variability of the results emphasises the importance of ensuring that traps
are abundant and widespread in stoat control operations.

Summary: This report documents work contributing to a project commissioned by the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre to validate and refine risk assessment models used in decisions to import and manage introduced vertebrate species. The intent of the project was to: a) increase predictive accuracy, scientific validation and adoption of risk assessment models for the import and keeping of exotic vertebrates, and b) reduce the risk of new vertebrate pests establishing introduced populations in Australia.

Summary: Models for assessing the risk that exotic vertebrates could establish in Australia have been developed for mammals, birds (Bomford 2003; Bomford 2006, 2008), reptiles and amphibians (Bomford 2006, 2008; Bomford et al. 2005). These Risk Assessment models have been further explored by Western Australia Department of Agriculture & Food (DAFWA) to confirm that they reasonably predict public safety, establishment and pest risks across a full range of exotic species and risk levels. Mammals and birds were assessed for the pest risk they pose if introduced to Australia, by calculating Vertebrate Pests Committee (VPC) Threat Categories. These categories incorporate risk of establishing populations in the wild, risk of causing public harm, and risk of becoming a pest (eg causing agricultural damage, competing with native fauna, etc). The 7-factor Australian Bird and Mammal Model was used for these assessments.
