Predator introduction disrupts lizard coexistence

Nature Published June 6, 2019 | 13:00 EDT (News release from Nature Research Press) Introducing predatory lizards to a set of small Caribbean islands causes resident lizard populations to change their behaviour, altering the way lizards co-exist and leading to population extinctions. This effect could apply to predator-introduction scenarios on islands and lakes worldwide. Canadian co-authors: […]
