We deduce the Ahlfors five islands theorem from a corresponding result of Nevanlinna concerning perfectly branched values, a rescaling lemma for non-normal families and an existence theorem for quasiconformal mappings. We also give a proof of Nevanlinna’s result based on the rescaling lemma and a version of Schwarz’s lemma.
