Description : The distinct island flora and fauna have evolved over thousands of years. The species here often differ from those found on the mainland. Many common continental species are not found on the islands at all, or have evolved into unique subspecies such as the black bear and the pine marten (both larger than mainland cousins), the deer mouse, the dusky shrew and the short-tailed weasel. Other species have been introduced relatively recently - the Sitka black-tailed deer, raccoons, squirrels, beaver and three species of rats - and now exist in large numbers, much to the detriment of the native plants and animals.
