2. Why do ecologists blame feral pigs for the decline in the fox populations on the Channel Islands?

3. What does apparent competition mean? How is it different from direct competition? Which two animal species were involved in apparent competition?

4. Why didn’t the pig population or the skunk population decline?

5. Why do ecologists think that eradicating feral pigs from the Channel Islands will help the fox populations to rebound?
