Giant centipedes prey on seabirds

August 4, 2021.

New open access research published in The American Naturalist, "Arthropod Predation of Vertebrates Structures Trophic Dynamics in Island Ecosystems"

This research is supported with an article we wrote in The Conversation

"Giant bird-eating centipedes exist — and they’re surprisingly important for their ecosystem"

Research presented at the World Seabird Twitter Conference (#WSTC7)

In May this year, I presented some of my PhD research on the role of an endemic arthropod, the Phillip Island Centipede (Cormocephalus coynei) in structuring trophic dynamics and nutrient flow in a remote island ecosystem.
