Does anyone know of any good studies on wild rabbits that have been published? I'd love to know more about them, but when you Google it you just get bits and pieces of basic info that we already know. I'm looking for some proper scientific papers and studies etc

Probably not quite what you were looking for (as it's not a scientific paper or anything), but if you haven't read it, Ann McBride's book 'why does my rabbit' has some really good stuff about wild rabbits. I found it fascinating.

Thank you, yes I have got that one and saw her talk at the recent WRAF conference... she was very good speaking publicly and a bit crazy :lol:

If you don't mind the grusome bits, then 'the private life of the rabbit' by R. M. Lockley is very interesting. It provided alot of the info For Richard Adams when writing Watership Down:thumb:
not the easiest to get hold of though. I do have a copy but I no longer lend it out as I can't get a replacement:?
