    Macquarie Is. (sub-Antarctic) (Australia) English 
    Modification de l'écosystème: Despite sporadic work on the impacts of house mice (Mus musculus) on Macquarie Island, little is known of their direct ecological impact. Research on their typical food sources shows that they feed on invertebrates plus some plants and seeds. They are distributed throughout the island including the upland fellfield and grassland communities.
    Despite video evidence of mice eating albatross chicks on (sub-Antarctic) Gough Island, this behaviour has not been recorded on Macquarie Island. However mice are not a part of a natural ecological system on Macquarie Island and are likely to mainly effect invertebrate populations and plant associations.
    Cayman Brac (Cayman Islands) English 
    Menace pour les espèces en danger: The house mouse, Mus musculus is implicated in the extinction of a number of native species of small mammals, birds and reptiles (Morgan, 1994 in Varnham, 2006).
    Grand Cayman (Cayman Islands) English 
    Menace pour les espèces en danger: The house mouse, Mus musculus is implicated in the extinction of a number of native species of small mammals, birds and reptiles (Morgan, 1994 in Varnham, 2006).
    Little Cayman (Cayman Islands) English 
    Menace pour les espèces en danger: The house mouse, Mus musculus is implicated in the extinction of a number of native species of small mammals, birds and reptiles (Morgan, 1994 in Varnham, 2006).
    Kerguelen Is. (sub-Antarctic) (French Southern Territories) français  English 
    Modification de l'écosystème: Mus musculus peut avoir un impact important sur la communauté d' invertébrée et sur le fonctionnement de l'ensemble du réseau trophique (Le Roux et al., 2002). Cependant, M. musculus pourrait également avoir un effet positif sur le contrôle d'un coléoptére exotique, Oopterus soledadinus, qui menace également des arthropodes indigènes dont la mouche aptère endémique Anatalanta aptera.
    Martinique français  English 
    Agricole: Les populations de Mus musculus peuvent être abondantes dans les agroécosystèmes, notamment dans les plantations de canne à sucre, où elles occasionnent des pertes importantes (Pascal et al., 2004).
    Grand Terre Is. (New Caledonia) (New Caledonia (Nouvelle Caledonie)) français  English 
    Réduction de la biodiversité indigène: Impacts possibles sur les peuplements d'invertébrés autochtones et sur les espèces qui leurs sont inféodés (oiseaux, reptiles) (Pascal et al., 2006)

    Transmission de maladie: Rôle potentiel de reservoir de la bacterie agent de la leptospirose. Le taux de prévalence de cette maladie est 200 fois plus élevé en Nouvelle-Calédonie qu'en France métropolitaine (Pascal et al., 2006).
    Saint Helena English 
    Menace pour les espèces en danger: House mouse, Mus musculus are implicated in the decline of endemic snails (Succinea spp.) , the 'Critically Endangered (CR)' giant earwig (see Labidura herculeana in IUCN Red List of Threatened Species) and other endemic invertebrates on the island (McCulloch and Norris, undated in Varnham, 2006).

    Réduction de la biodiversité indigène: House mouse, Mus musculus are highly omnivorous, and are known to eat seeds, flowers and invertebrates, including giant ground beetles (Ashmole and Ashmole, 2000 in Varnham, 2006). They may predate on the 'Critically Endangered (CR)' endemic wirebird's (see Charadrius sanctaehelenae in IUCN Red List of Threatened Species) eggs (known to eat eggs of ground nesting birds elsewhere in the world) (McCulloch and Norris, undated in Varnham, 2006).
    Sao Tome and Principe English 
    Prédation: The Guinea Lidless Skink (see Afroablepharus africana) is classified as 'Vulnerable (VU)' in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. It is restricted to three location on the islands of Sâo Tomé, Principé, and Rolas in the Gulf of Guinea. The main threats to this species are suspected to be loss of habitat through deforestation and predation by introduced mammals. Introduced mammals on these islands include the African civet, Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus), ship rat (Rattus rattus), house mouse (Mus musculus), Mona monkey (Cercopithecus mona) and weasel (Mustela nivalis) (Ineich 2010).

    Prédation: Declining populations of three endemic and 'Critically Endangered (CR)' birds the Sao Tome Ibis (see Bostrychia bocagei); the Sao Tome Canary (see Neospiza concolor) and the Sao Tome Fiscal (see Lanius newtoni) are under threat of loss of habitat and potential predation by introduced mammals that include the African civet, ship rat (Rattus rattus), house mouse (Mus musculus), Mona monkey (Cercopithecus mona) and weasel (Mustela nivalis) (BirdLife International 2009; BirdLife International 2010; BirdLife International 2011). Feral pigs are also present and could be a threat (BirdLife International 2010).
