Models for rat distribution included distance to the nearest rat source and island size. This figure presents the fraction of islands of a given size (bubble size is proportional to island size) predicted to have rats by our models as a function of distance to the nearest rat source. Colors of dots represent islands with (red) or without rats (blue). In both the west and east of the Falkland archipelago, the probability of rat presence on an island decreased with distance to the nearest rat-infested island. There was a higher probability of rat presence in the western sector than in the eastern sector and in the west rats were more likely to be found on larger than on smaller islands. In the east, there was no significant effect of island area on rat occupancy. Black dots (± SE) represent the fraction of islands with rats binned in groups of 500 m of swim distance.
