Furbearer populations have been monitored on a National Environmental Research Park for twenty-five years.  There was an initial temporary increase in numbers following the closing of the area.  Since then populations have paralleled habitat and food abundance changes.  Although these animals have not been directly reduced by man over the years, several significant changes which have occurred are discussed.
