此物种详细信息 Enderby Island (sub-Antarctic)
来源： Torr, 2002.
House mice (Mus musculus) were probably introduced to Enderby Island during a period of attempted human settlement around 1850. Prior to eradication they were widespread.
The eradication of rabbits and house mice (Mus musculus) in 1993 involved two phases. Two aerial poison drops were carried out, using brodifacoum. This was carried out in February, outside the rabbit breeding season. Follow up was carried out using a rabbit-tracking dog, spotlighting and traps to remove the remaining rabbits. About 1% of the rabbit population did not appear to take any bait. There were some impacts on non-target species - four Auckland Island teal (Anas aucklandica aucklandica) carcasses were found on Enderby Island and three on Rose Island, and approximately two thirds of the Enderby and Rose Islands subantarctic skua (Stercorarius skua lonnburgi) population died, although the population has now recovered. Monitoring in 1994/1995 failed to find any signs of rabbits or mice. Since eradication, the vegetation has shown significant signs of recovery.
