Factors affecting home range size and overlap in Calomys venustus (Muridae: Sigmodontinae) in Argentine agroecosystems
Summary In this study, information concerning home range size and overlap of Calomys venustus (Thomas, 1894), in relation to sex, population size, and breeding periods is provided. The present studyExpand

Commensal and wild rodents in an urban area of Argentina
The aim of this study was to determine the rodent species, distribution, and abundance in an urban area, in relation to epidemiology risk or damage, so as to elaborate a control program. The firstExpand

Inter-male aggression with regard to polygynous mating system in Pampean grassland mouse, Akodon azarae (Cricetidae: Sigmodontinae)
Based on the hypothesis that, in Akodon azarae, polygyny operates through female defence, we studied inter-male aggression in order to test the following predictions: during the breeding period (1)Expand

The use of fluctuating asymmetry as a measure of farming practice effects in rodents: A species-specific response
Abstract The effects of agricultural intensification on vertebrate populations could vary depending on whether species are habitat specialists or habitat generalists. Organic farming practices areExpand

Corn mice (Calomys musculinus) movement in linear habitats of agricultural ecosystems
Abstract Movement patterns of Calomys musculinus in linear habitats were studied in relation to sex, season, year, abundance, and width of border. Movement distances (MDs) were measured by seasonalExpand

Demographic dynamics of Akodon azarae (Cricetidae: Sigmodontinae) in linear habitats of agricultural landscapes of central Argentina
ABSTRACT Linear habitats are capable of providing essential resources for small mammals within agroecosystems. We analyzed demographic parameters of Akodon azarae in a linear habitat of centralExpand

Ecological preference between generalist and specialist rodents: spatial and environmental correlates of phenotypic variation
Different ecological preferences among species may result in differences in response to similar environmental variation. To test this hypothesis, we assessed the patterns of skull and mandible sizeExpand

Agricultural land-use intensity and its effects on small mammals in the central region of Argentina
Agriculture intensification is one of the main threats to biodiversity in agricultural systems. The effectiveness of conservation strategies in these systems depends mainly on the compromise betweenExpand
