Management Notes for this Location:
Ecosystem change: Mus musculus can have a significant impact on the invertebrate community and on the functioning of the entire trophic network (Le Roux et al, 2002). However, M. musculus could also have a positive effect on the control of the exotic beetle, Oopterus soledadinus, which also threatens arthropod species such as the endemic wingless fly Anatalanta aptera.
