Invasive predator-prey dynamics and monitoring in Guam forests
Managing invasive predators on islands is a global conservation priority because they are causally linked to the extinction and endangerment of hundreds of insular species. Sympatric invasive prey species further threaten native biota and complicate invasive predator management; top-down and bottom-up trophic forces following invasive predator management can negate costly control efforts and worsen invasive predator impacts. The growing possibility of landscape-scale suppression of the invasive brown treesnake (Boiga irregularis) on the island of Guam created the needs for 1) a cost-effective ...
