Some islands in the Falkland Islands archipelago have introduced populations of Norway rats. Other islands have no rats, either because rats have never been introduced, or because rats have been eradicated. Presence of rats alters the bird community present on an island.

These data are from the following publication: Tabak MA, Poncet S, Passfield K, Goheen JR, Martinez del Rio C. (2015) Rat eradication and the resistance and resilience of passerine bird assemblages in the Falkland Islands. Journal of Animal Ecology 84(3): 755-765.
