In this paper, we introduce a natural subclass of meromorphic starlike functions in the open unit disk. Results concerning subordination properties, integral representations, properties of convolutions, inclusion relationship and coefficient inequalities for the functions of this class are derived. Furthermore, we solve radius problems for certain related classes of meromorphic strongly starlike functions and meromorphic parabolic starlike functions.
