Ecology of Aldabra Atoll

D. R. STODDART & C. A. WRIGHT

Department of Geography, University of Cambridge
Department of Zoology, British Museum (Natural History), London

The Royal Society made public on February 22 its concern that the island of Aldabra might be used as an air staging post and transmitting station. The island ecosystem of Aldabra is of great interest to biologists. The authors visited the island during 1966, and Dr. Stoddart will return with the Royal Society Expedition to Aldabra this summer.
