Mammal invaders on islands: impact, control and control impact
It is difficult to predict the outcome of the removal of key species, such as a top predator, given the numerous and complex population interactions among island species, and justifies careful pre‐control study and preparation prior to initiating the eradication of an alien species, in order to avoid an ecological catastrophe.

Personality, space use and tick load in an introduced population of Siberian chipmunks Tamias sibiricus.
The results show that host personality-related patterns in space use can lead to a non-random parasite distribution among hosts. Expand
Alien mammals, impact and management in the French subantarctic islands
The unique plant and animal communities of the French subantarctic islands have been greatly modified by the introduction of mammals since their discovery in 1552 and 1772 and measures are being taken to control or eradicate alien species populations. Expand
Unexpected heterozygosity in an island mouflon population founded by a single pair of individuals
This study analysed changes in heterozygosity over time in an insular mouflon population founded by two individuals in 1957 and located on one of the most isolated locations in the world: the Kerguelen Sub-Antarctic archipelago. Expand
Recovery of native plant communities after eradication of rabbits from the subantarctic Kerguelen Islands, and influence of climate change
To study the recovery of native plant communities, rabbits were eradicated by poisoning on two islands, producing a significant increase in species richness on both islands with a decline in the cover of some native species and an increase in the abundance of alien species. Expand
House mouse colonization patterns on the sub-Antarctic Kerguelen Archipelago suggest singular primary invasions and resilience against re-invasion
The genetic data suggest that an area colonized by mice is refractory to further introgression, possibly due to fast adaptations of the resident mice to local conditions. Expand
Macroparasites of Pallas's squirrels (Callosciurus erythraeus) introduced into Europe.
The macroparasite fauna of these two squirrel populations is consistent with what is expected from an introduced host, i.e., a few species dominated by specialist taxa imported with founders. Expand
High-Throughput Sequence Typing Reveals Genetic Differentiation and Host Specialization among Populations of the Borrelia burgdorferi Species Complex that Infect Rodents
Lyme disease is a zoonosis caused by various species belonging to the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterial species complex. These pathogens are transmitted by ticks and infect multiple, taxonomicallyExpand
Female-biased mortality induced by male sexual harassment in a feral sheep population
It was shown that male monthly mortality followed a bimodal distribution with peaks corresponding to the two rutting periods, and female mortality due to male harassment was confirmed by direct observations and examination of females injured during r Rutting periods. Expand
Mapping human risk of infection with Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, the agent of Lyme borreliosis, in a periurban forest in France.
A snapshot map of the risk of human infection with B. burgdorferi s. Expand
