Background information and definitions
Damage to agricultural crops by mammalian herbivores may cause substantial losses for some farmers. Although labour-intensive, farmers in some areas may directly guard crops. If this can reduce crop losses to mammals, it could reduce incentive for carrying out lethal control of such species.
