Human commensal species are thought to depend so closely on resources provided by humans that they are effectively ‘natives’ of urban environments. However, while their adaptations to urban existence are well understood, their ecology and habitat choices have not been closely examined. This study investigated the habitat preferences of the archetypal commensal species, the invasive black rat Rattus rattus, at the urban-bushland interface in Sydney, Australia, and modelled the results using isodar analysis. Unexpectedly, we...
