Populations of rodents isolated on islads often show systematic differences in demography, reproduction, behavior, and morphology when compared to mainland populations. These differences, termed the island syndrome, include higher and more stable densities, better survival, increased body mass, and reduced aggressiveness, reproductive output, and dispersal. We synthesize information in the literature on island rodent populations and construct a conceptual model to explain in the island syndrome… Expand
