Dung down under: dung beetles for Australia is the first farmer-friendly book on the ecology and management of dung beetles in Australia, possibly the world. It is an essential reference for farmers, Landcare groups and environmental organisations concerned with sustainable land management.
This A4 illustrated colour book (120 pages) examines the ecological, environmental and production benefits of dung beetles, and provides a non-technical analysis of their value and potential role in increasing soil carbon storage. There is also a novel section on the use of dung beetles in vineyards and orchards to improve soil health without disrupting root systems.
Factors limiting dung beetle abundance, distribution and activity are examined and gaps are identified. The need to fill these with further beetle introductions is emphasised. Recent introductions to New Zealand are also considered.
Regional report cards allow a quick assessment of which dung beetles might occur in particular regions, approximately how abundant they might be and which additional species might prosper.
