p577 “Studies attempting to define the cause of the continuing decline in the population of the Eastern Barred Bandicoot (Perameles gunnii) in Hamilton, western Victoria, showed that dieldrin residues were present in the limited number of samples examined (Lenghaus at al 1990)… The extent to which exposure to dieldrin contributed to the death or debilitation of individual animals is unknown, as are any effects that insecticides may have had on the insects or arthropods which are included in the bandicoot diet”
