Abstract: The reintroduction of endangered Australian mammals to areas of their former range is a valuable strategy to aid the future survival of these species. Many of these programs have rapidly failed, however, due to predation by the introduced red fox and feral cat. A strategy to deal with this predation would be to provide the reintroduced animals with a chemical defence, making them toxic to the predating fox or cat. This thesis describes the analysis of Gastrolobium seed for possible toxicants which could potentially provide chemical defence compounds for reintroduced fauna.
