32 Applied Population and Community Ecology per month across all seven sites. 1). Hence the dung counts also showed a clumped spatial dispersion pattern (b > 1). To summarise, the estimated exponents (b) were within the range of 1–3 often reported for wildlife and other species (Taylor 1961; Anderson et al. 1982; Taylor et al. 1983) and were consistent with clumped temporal and spatial dispersion patterns. Population density Population density is rarely known for a wildlife species. If known, however, it can be useful for wildlife managers.

2009). 76 female young per adult female per year) were from Saunders (1993). 60) of feral pigs was estimated as the complement of the mean age-specific mortality rate (qx ) data of Saunders (1993), though adjusted downwards slightly to achieve a stable trend in abundance. 3 Demographic parameters of feral pig, red fox and wild horse populations. The first values shown are those for a stable population, and then corresponding values are shown for increasing and decreasing populations. Fecundity, adult survival and finite population growth rate (λ) have units of per year.

99) and higher than some other estimates, except that calculated from Twigg et al. 5). 3b). 67 (Berghout 2000), slightly less than that reported by Hone (1999). 27) reported by Garrott et al. 25) for wild horses in Kakadu National Park in northern Australia (Skeat 1990). 84) reported by Berman (1991) in central Australia. 67 per year (Skeat 1990). 5 Examples of estimates of annual finite population growth rates (λ) of feral pig populations from field studies and from modelling.
