of an Enclosed Population of Pine Mice, Microtus pinetorum
Enclosed populations of pine mice were studied over a 28-month period and
compared with populations in surrounding natural areas.
The enclosed populations reached densities far greater than any observed
in surrounding natural areas. It is
suggested that the restriction place don dispersal by the enclosure walls and
the addition of food in the form of trap bait could have allowed the enclosed
populations to reach higher densities than normally observed at SRP.
