|Abstract: ||The Port Hills Rangers (Greenspace Unit, Christchurch City Council) in conjunction with Environment Canterbury is establishing mammalian predator control at several reserves on the Port Hills of Canterbury. Vegetation, birds and invertebrates are being monitored to determine what effect predator control may have on them. This study, combined with the 2003 survey (Bowie & Sirvid, 2004), will provide baseline invertebrate data for comparisons
