DAN L. REINKING. DoNALD H. WOLFE. STEVE K. SHERROD, AND M. ALAN JENKINS Grassland birds are declining faster than any. Similarly, removal of small mammals had few effects on the plant community, and interactions between insect and small-mammal herbivory were unimportant. These results must be interpreted with caution, because the insecticides used in this experiment may not have been effective in reducing the presence of the most important herbivorous by:

They range in size from tiny shrews, only a few centimetres long, to the metre (foot) blue whale. Most mammals have four limbs and a covering of hair or fur. Sea mammals, such as whales and dolphins, have adapted to life in the water by losing their hair and forming their hind limbs into a tail.

Deer Mice (Peromyscus maniculatus) were live‐trapped and tracked across a gradient of shrub cover in shortgrass prairie to determine patterns of abundance, microhabitat use and movements. In areas with few shrubs, mice preferred shrub microhabitats and their movement trails were relatively by:   Long-term field studies of small mammals are essential for establishing general, rather than year-specific, patterns of population abundance.

Short-term projects may allow detection of variability in abundance, but long-term ecological studies are necessary to investigate potential factors affecting variability (Matlack et al.

Small mammals were live-trapped 8 mo before and 8 mo after a prescribed burn. Vegetation sampling confirmed drastic reduction of cover after fire in the grassland sections of the prairie.

Abstract. Understanding determinants of local species diversity remains central to developing plans to preserve biodiversity. In the continental United States, climate, grazing by large mammals, fire, and topography are important ecosystem drivers that structure North American tallgrass prairie, with major impacts on plant community composition and vegetation structure.

Few comprehensive studies of riparian small-mammal communities have been conducted (Boeer and Schmidly, ). The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that riparian environments provide superior habitat for small mammals in montane areas.

To investigate this hypothesis, I evaluated differ. You can write a book review and share your experiences.
