Three Adrift Lab Papers in IUCN Proceedings

Three Adrift Lab papers have been included in the IUCN Proceedings of the conference on island invasives 2017. The first (p.167) details the recovery of introduced Pacific rats (Rattus exulans) on Henderson Island. The second paper (p.175) examines potential ways to mitigate negative impacts of eradication efforts on non-target species.

Rodent eradications are a useful tool for the restoration of native biodiversity on islands

The third paper (p.200) looks at how population dynamic studies can inform eradication efforts (e.g., improved understanding of rodent movement and behaviour).

Understanding such spatial and temporal information is critical to plan rodent eradication operations
