Island mammal extinctions are determined by interactive effects of life history, island biogeography and mesopredator suppression

Hanna, Emily; Cardillo, Marcel

Description

Aim: Understanding extinction on islands is critical for biodiversity conservation. Introduced predators are a major cause of island extinctions, but there have been few large-scale studies of the complexity of the effects of predators on island faunas, or how predation interacts with other factors. Using a large database of island mammal populations, we describe and explain patterns of island mammal extinctions as a function of introduced predators, life history and geography.
