When predators become prey: Scientists track island foxes
|A team of biologists
has documented the extent to which feral pigs have disrupted the ecosystem of the
Channel Islands, threatening the native island fox with extinction. Josh Donlan,
science director for the nonprofit Island Conservation and Ecology Group based at
UCSC, has coauthored a paper on the biologists' findings. The cat-sized island fox,
once the dominant predator in the ecosystem, is now preyed upon by golden eagles.
