...; Foreman and Alexander 1998; Jones 2000; Taylor and Goldingay 2004). Much of this attention has been focused on mammalian fauna. To a large extent this is understandable because many species that are frequent victims of road-kill are quite large (e.g. ungulates, kangaroos), causing severe damage...

Many native animals, including threatened species, are growing dependent upon exotic plants and animals, and this dependency calls into question the presumption that exotic means ‘bad’. Conversely, many native species behave at times as pests. The native-good...
