Nash et al. Ecosphere 2016 The resilience of an ecosystem can be defined as its capacity to absorb disturbances while maintaining structure and function (Holling 1973). It has proved challenging to predict

PREVENTION, CONTROL AND MANAGEMENT OF INVASIVE ALIEN SPECIES IN THE PACIFIC ISLANDS 2011–2016

Pacific islands intimately connect land and sea. Rats, cats, and other invasive species quickly destroy these links, particularly by predating on native forest seeds, forest birds, sea birds, and other vital ecosystem
components. Effective management of invasive species is key to protect terrestrial and marine systems, supporting their function and increasing their resilience to change.
