... experiment elucidated dingo’s effects on small livestock, their per capita predation rates, and their invasiveness or their ability to adapt and change their environment. The experiment confirmed that dingoes have the capacity to decimate populations of small livestock species and trigger a trophic cascade...

...) about their management for control and conservation, and even about their taxonomy (i.e. Allen et al. 2017a; Jackson and Groves 2015; Jackson et al. 2017 vs. Crowther et al. 2014; Smith 2015). Much discussion pivots on the possibility of trophic cascade models and mesopredator release/ suppression...

...; Oksanen et al. 1981). This could partly explain why tri-trophic cascades have not been demonstrated experimentally in Australian systems (Allen et al. 2013a; Allen et al. 2013b). Mesopredator release can be observed in wild canid populations when suppression by humans is removed, and greater predation...

... of the dingo fence confirmed earlier findings that the removal of dingoes can trigger changes in the numbers of herbivores (e.g. kangaroos) and/or mesopredators (e.g. red fox Vulpes vulpes), and suggested trophic cascades extending to small mammals, vegetation, soil profiles/ geomorphology and seed dispersal...
