Sources of reinfestation of oil palms by the wood rat (Rattus tiomanicus)



Sources of reinfestation of oil palms by the wood rat (Rattus tiomanicus)



Crop protection in Malaysia: 146-165



Studies in W. Malaysia showed that rats are not usually very mobile hence recolonization is rather slow in new plantings and in old palm fields where the population has been depleted by baiting. The species is largely absent from towns, rubber fields and jungle but lallang (Imperata cylindrica) fields are a potential source of reinfestation.
