The impact of conservation-driven translocations on blood parasite prevalence in the Seychelles warbler Fairfield et al 2016 Sci Rep.pdf

Introduced populations often lose the parasites they carried in their native range, but little is known about which processes may cause parasite loss during host movement. Conservation-driven translocations could provide an opportunity to identify the mechanisms involved. Using 3,888 blood samples collected over 22 years, we investigated parasite prevalence in populations of Seychelles warblers (Acrocephalus sechellensis) after individuals were translocated from Cousin Island to four new islands.

The use of Starlicide in preliminary trials to control invasive common myna Acridotheres tristis populations on St Helena and Ascension islands, Atlantic Ocean.pdf

Introduced common mynas Acridotheres tristis have been implicated as a threat to native biodiversity on the oceanic islands of St Helena and Ascension (UK). A rice-based bait treated with Starlicide® wasbroadcast for consumption by flocks of common mynas at the government rubbish tips on the two islands during investigation of potential myna management techniques.
