349 13 Agency App. C “Data gaps..reproductive toxicity to birds” (lizards, invertebrates, frogs, bats, fish not studied either)
415 1 Agency App. C “[1080 doses [100 or 250 mg/kg bw] in an Australian lizard reduced testosterone levels and there was degeneration of reproductive structures]”
416 5 Agency App. C “No data are available on the toxicity of 1080 to native NZ reptiles (geckoes, skinks and tuatara)”
417 2 Agency App. C “[time to death for bluetongued lizard 14.4-522.5 hours]”
534 6 Agency App. F “Prey switching by cats and ferrets from rabbits to other species may occur following rabbit operations, with native skinks highly vulnerable to large swings in rabbit numbers”
723 9 Agency App. N “The Agency has insufficient information to evaluate the attractiveness of..baits to skinks and has made no quantitative assessment of the risks of 1080 to skinks” (geckos not mentioned)
724 3 Agency App. N (whole groups of organisms have been omitted from the Agency’s Exposure &  Risk Assessment, including ferns, mosses, freshwater molluscs, fungi, geckos, as well as habitats, including swamps, ponds, slow-flowing streams, groundwater, pine forests)
754 3 Agency App. N “The responses of [35] captive skinks to..non-toxic..cereal baits and to..cereal bait containing pindone [an anticoagulant used mainly for rabbit control] have been evaluated..consumption of the wetted baits increased significantly, with no difference between the 2 types of bait..the Agency was not able to locate any information on the palatability of carrot bait to lizards”
755 1 Agency App. N “The Agency has..made no quantitative assessment of the risks of 1080 to skinks”
70 1 Applicants’ references “[skinks] ate..[cereal] bait..sublethal effects require further study” (Freeman et al., 1996)
119 2 Applicants’ references “Reptiles and amphibians generally were the slowest to first show signs of poisoning” (McIlroy, 1986)
41 4 Committee Decision “..the benefits of the use of 1080 to native lizards and frogs have not been directly demonstrated”
41 5 Committee Decision “Ground control operations could protect known populations [of lizards and frogs]”
64 3 Committee Decision “low sowing rates of bait in forest environments reduce the likelihood of lizards and frogs being exposed”
64 4 Committee Decision “there is some evidence that skinks may feed on moistened cereal bait”
64 5 Committee Decision “skinks may be vulnerable to ‘prey-switching’ by stoats and cats [from rabbit control operations]”
64 6 Committee Decision “The Committee has amended the control on the use of carrot bait to ensure that it is screened to remove small pieces [which will help to adequately manage the risks to native lizards and frogs]”
104 1 Committee Decision “The requirements [for mean 6g bait and <1.5% chaff] do not..apply when the carrot bait is being used for rabbit control through ground-based application”
126 4 Committee Decision “the existing and new controls..[adjust level of risk to frogs and lizards]” (none of the controls addresses prey switching by predators, eating of baits or secondary poisoning)
126 3 Committee Decision “Risks [to bats, native birds, frogs and lizards] are generally well understood by users of…1080 and can be managed”
133 3 Committee Decision “three significant risks..with aerial 1080..[3] effects on native herpetofauna (frogs and lizards) following direct exposure to pellets” (omitted carrots, secondary poisoning, prey switching)
196 1 Decision App.B “Compliance with best practice for preparation and distribution of bait minimises risks [to frogs & lizards]”
