  4. Food security: one of a number of 'securities' we need for a full life: an Australian perspective

    Contributor(s):: Farmar-Bowers, Q.

    | Contributor(s):: Smith, B. P., Litchfield, C. A.

    Canids form a large part of Indigenous Australian life and mythology, an association first developed with the dingo, and later with the domestic dog. The relationship between canids and Indigenous Australians is intricate, but unique in that these peoples never domesticated the wild dingo....

  10. Wild animal conservation and welfare in agricultural systems. (Special Issue: Conservation and animal welfare.)

    | Contributor(s):: Mathews, F.

    At least one-third of the land on earth is used for agricultural production and conflicts with the interests of wildlife are inevitable.
