WELCOME TO THE AFRICAN RODENT VIRTUAL CENTRE
The Rodent Virtual Centre was created as one of the work packages in the project StopRats which aimed at establishing a multi-stakeholder capacity building platform about African rodents.
The aim of the Rodent Virtual Centre is the creation of a place for networking and communication among different stakeholders within and outside Africa. It will act as a single source linking all other relevant sources of information about rodents and their management in Africa. Information on the website and that which can be sourced elsewhere will cover many aspects about rodents, in particular African rodent species which are pests, the damage they cause in crop production, the loss and contamination of stored food after harvest, and the many health problems inflicted on people and domestic animals through the transmission of rodent-borne diseases.
