Summary Over the past decade rodents have emerged as significant agricultural pests throughout Southeast Asia. This book summarises current knowledge of the 20+ rodents that are major agricultural pests in SE Asia as well as other non-pest rodents. Its clear descriptions and illustrations will help people identify these species. For each one there is a summary of geographic distribution, diet, habits and behaviour. The book includes practical instructions on trapping methods, safe handling of rats and mice, and techniques for assessing reproductive activity
