Clinical Pathology of the Critically Endangered Gough Bunting (Rowettia goughensis).
TLDR
No overt clinical or subclinical disease was found in any of the birds examined, which suggests they are suitable for short-term captivity during ecosystem restoration and the data will provide key haematological and biochemical reference ranges for monitoring their health.
First evidence of mouse attacks on adult albatrosses and petrels breeding on sub-Antarctic Marion and Gough Islands
TLDR
First evidence of mouse attacks on adult albatrosses and petrels breeding on Marion and Gough Islands is reported, adding to mounting evidence of the impacts of mice on seabirds, and further support calls to eradicate mice from Marion andGough Islands.
The impacts of introduced House Mice on the breeding success of nesting seabirds on Gough Island

Clinical Pathology of the Vulnerable Gough Moorhen (Gallinula comeri).
TLDR
No clinical or subclinical disease was found in any of the birds examined, suggesting they are suitable for short-term captivity but rapid on-island genetic-based sex determination will be essential to ensure a reproductively balanced population.
Drivers of predatory behavior and extreme size in house mice Mus musculus on Gough Island
TLDR
It is concluded that selection for extreme body mass and predatory behavior of mice result from enhanced overwinter survival on Gough Island, where small mammal populations at temperate and high latitudes are normally limited by high mortality during the winter, but on G Dough Island mice avoid that by exploiting the island's abundant seabird chicks.
Low population density and biology of an island population of house mice Mus musculus on South Georgia
TLDR
The very low population density and its restricted distribution, with most captures close to the shore, and the presence of large numbers of burrowing petrels and South Georgia pipits Anthus antarcticus at both sites suggest that mice have a relatively limited impact on South Georgia’s vertebrate biodiversity.
Trends and tactics of mouse predation on Tristan Albatross Diomedea dabbenena chicks at Gough Island, South Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
The presence of mouse wounds on other chicks strongly suggests that mice were responsible for most chick deaths, and island-wide breeding success fell below 10% for the first time in 2014, making it even more urgent to eradicate mice from Gough Island.
Impact of introduced house mice (Mus musculus) on burrowing seabirds on Steeple Jason and Grand Jason Islands, Falklands,
TLDR
The distribution, relative abundance and breeding success of small burrowing seabirds on Steeple Jason Island, Falklands, is examined in relation to habitat types and the distribution of house mice which is the sole introduced mammal species, and comparisons with seabird distribution and densities on the neighbouring island of Grand Jason where mice are absent.
Impact of introduced house mice (Mus musculus) on burrowing seabirds on Steeple Jason and Grand Jason Islands, Falklands, South Atlantic
TLDR
The distribution, relative abundance and breeding success of small burrowing seabirds on Steeple Jason Island, Falklands, is examined in relation to habitat types and the distribution of house mice which is the sole introduced mammal species, and comparisons with seabird distribution and densities on the neighbouring island of Grand Jason where mice are absent.
