Ungulate eradication is an important restoration tool, especially in island environments where ungulates are considered destructive invasive species. Ultimately, this may be the preferred management tool for Guam's ecosystems, as efforts that have focused on removing invasive species and reintroducing native species have yielded many positive.

Foraging is the central process in resource ecology as it leads to growth, survival and reproduction of the animal and thus, ultimately influences its fitness. Ungulates forage selectively and are not only influenced by vegetation and landscape structure, but are themselves major drivers of landscape heterogeneity [].Cited by: This seminal book synthesizes studies in large herbivore ecology and most importantly raised questions on the role of body size in ungulate biology and the influence of megaherbivores on ecosystem processes.
