The ICRBM and Ecologically Based Rodent Management

Ecologically-based rodent management (EBRM) is a term coined nearly 20 years ago by Prof Grant Singleton and Prof dr Herwig Leirs. Following a workshop in 1996 in Morogoro, Tanzania at the Pest Management Centre, Sokoine University of Agriculture, the theme of ecologically-based rodent research was emphasized as the future of rodent research, particularly in Africa and Asia. Further discussions together with Dr Lyn Hinds and Prof Zhibin Zhang led to the first international conference on rodent biology and management held in Beijing in October 1998 and the seminal book Ecologically-Based Rodent Management published by ACIAR the following year.
