Modelling woylie (Bettongia penicillata) population genetics to inform management strategies
Pacioni, C. (2014) Modelling woylie (Bettongia penicillata) population genetics to inform management strategies. WWF-Australia, Perth, Western Australia.
The aim of this study was to assist the development of management guidelines for the woylie (Bettongia penicillata) designed to ‘maximise the woylie genetic diversity at a species level', as prescribed by the Woylie Recovery Team (WRT). To meet this main conservation objective the WRT suggested the use of translocations between populations, and the establishment of an insurance population at Perup Sanctuary (PS). The aim for the insurance population at Perup Sanctuary is to capture, as much as possible, the genetic material currently present in other woylie populations.
