Wild Pigs: Environmental Pest or Economic Resource? presents the beneficial and adverse effects on forests of wild pigs. This book provides the formulation of policies for the management or control of wild pigs. Organized into 10 chapters, this book begins with an overview of relevant worldwide aspects of wild pigs and provides information about feral pigs in Australia. This text then examines the difficulties of controlling wild pigs in agriculture and evaluates the economic damages to landholders. Other chapters consider the methods of assessing the hunting value of a species for recreational purposes. This book discusses as well the value of wild pigs in Australia and the relative significance of various species for hunting purposes in Australia. The final chapter deals with the adverse effects of wild pigs on agriculture, wildlife, forestry, and natural ecosystems. This book is a valuable resource for agricultural economists, agriculturalists, conservationists, foresters, recreational hunters, and pastoralists.
