The term “non-native species” almost always has a negative connotation, but new research shows that in Newfoundland, some native wildlife might actually benefit from them.

In a recently published study in PLOS ONE, researchers in Newfoundland found evidence that non-native species including snowshoe hare (Lepus americanus), introduced to the island in 1864, and the southern red-backed vole (Myodes gapperi), first detected on the island in 1998, have the potential for both negative and positive effects on Newfoundland’s terrestrial mammal food chain.
