Rodent control and island conservation
Most rodent species are highly adapted, selected, boom-or-bust strategists. Such pre-adaptation to invasiveness allows them quickly to take advantage of abundant new resources and is why rodents are among the most successful mammalian colonizers of islands. This chapter discusses the impacts of alien invasive rodents on natural ecosystems, with emphasis on oceanic islands, and review management techniques to mitigate their effects.
