Population biology and the control of feral cats on Marion Island



Population biology and the control of feral cats on Marion Island



Acta Zoologica Fennica 172: 107-110



Predation by feral cats, Felis catus, on burrowing birds of southern temperate and sub-Antarctic islands has resulted in their presence being considered undesirable. Attempts to eradicate or control these cats on Marion Island, a temperate island to the southeast of South Africa, have included the introduction of the host-specific feline panleucopaenia virus during March 1977.
