Description :
80 species of non-marine, non-migrant vertebrates, excluding also shore birds, have been recorded from the Krakatau archipelago since the explosive eruption of 1883. 73 of these are believed to have established breeding populations and successfully colonized the islands (47 resident land birds species, 13 bats, 11 reptiles and 2 rats). A large proportion of these colonizers consists of species with wide distributions, broad ecological tolerances and/or association with urban or rural situations.
