Abstract

During the period from January, 1958, to March, 1959, advantage was taken of an opportunity to observe a population of emus (Dromaius novae-hollandiae) at close quarters and an effort was made to gain some knowledge of the breeding behaviour, feeding habits, the extent of range and the damage caused by the birds The observations were collected while experimenting with methods to control the emu, during which, their reactions to colour, foreign food media and poisons were behur studied.
