Overabundant Species (recent appear at top)

Overabundance, in the form of both pest species and alien species invading ecosystems, has emerged as a major problem.  Most of my published work has been on, so called, 'pests' and perceived competition, especially between seabirds and fishermen.  My current work is focused on alien invasive species and I expect this will translate into publications on feral cats and other matters, when I can find some free time.
