Information on the Site’s Founders


The Internet Center for Wildlife Damage Management (ICWDM) attempts to consolidate existing and future information on integrated pest management (IPM) in wildlife damage management. Its goal is to increase adoption of IPM practices in wildlife damage management by centralizing resources (Hygnstrom et al., 1998)
