archipelago-wide island restoration in the galápagos islands: reducing costs of invasive mammal eradication programs and reinvasion risk.invasive alien mammals are the major driver of biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation on islands. over the past three decades, invasive mammal eradication from islands has become one of society's most powerful tools for preventing extinction of insular endemics and restoring insular ecosystems. as practitioners tackle larger islands for restoration, three factors will heavily influence success and outcomes: the degree of local support, the ability to mitigate for non-target impacts, and the ...201121589656
differences in straggling rates between two genera of dove lice (insecta: phthiraptera) reinforce population genetic and cophylogenetic patterns.differences in dispersal abilities have been implicated for causing disparate evolutionary patterns between columbicola and physconelloides lice (insecta: phthiraptera). however, no study has documented straggling (when lice are found on atypical hosts) rates within these lineages. we used the fact that the galapagos hawk, buteo galapagoensis (gould) (falconiformes) feeds on the galapagos dove zenaida galapagoensis gould (columbiformes) within an ecologically simplified setting. the galapagos do ...200415380682
