Aim: 
Does the dingo supress the red fox at a continental scale?
Type of Study: 
Pre-existing contrasts
Key Results: 
The dingo can suppress red fox populations
Treatments: 
N/A
Response: 
The dingo functions ecologically to reduce the activity or abundance of red foxes and thus are likely to dampen the predatory impacts offoxes.
Models: 
Frequentist quantile regression, meta-analysis.
Reviewer: 
Aaron Greenville
Locations: 
Qld, WA and
Response variable : 
dingo and fox bounties, index of abundance.
Replication: 
Queensland bounty records for16,165 dingoes and 15,715 foxes. Western Australian representing in total 3540 dingoes and 35,500 foxes. 26 sites for field data.
Ecosystem: 
Arid zone, rangelands
