Conservation biology: Cats, rats and seabirds

Abstract : Cats kill birds, and therefore eradicating cats from an island would seem to be a good strategy for protecting the native population of seabirds. But that thinking does not take account of ecological complications. When alien species colonize islands, some of the native inhabitants usually suffer. Seabirds are commonly the victims in these sad cases, because they or their chicks or eggs are especially prone to becoming the prey of introduced mammals.
