Behavioral structure and demography of subarctic Clethrionomys gapperi and Peromyscus maniculatus
A subarctic rodent community of Clethrionomys gapperi and Peromyscus maniculatus was censused with multiple-capture traps in contrasting years of population growth. Clethrionomys gapperi was involvedExpand

Fates and movements of meadow voles (Microtus pennsylvanicus) following a population decline
The movements of 24 meadow voles were monitored with radiotelemetry during summer 1985 near Pinawa, Manitoba, to ascertain fates following a severe winter population decline. Low breeding seasonExpand

Bioconcentration of fallout 137Cs by fungi and red-backed voles (Clethrionomys gapperi).
Cesium-137 and 40K concentrations were measured in vegetation and in red-backed voles (Clethrionomys gapperi) in southeastern Manitoba, Canada, following the Chernobyl accident in 1986. Voles fromExpand

Breeding performance in captivity of meadow voles ( Microtus pennsylvanicus ) from decline- and increase-phase populations
A major enigma in understanding microtine cycles is the failure of decline-phase animals to increase. We compared the performance of wild-caught meadow voles and their progeny from Pinawa, Manitoba,Expand

Trypanosomiasis and the conservation of black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) at the Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary, Tsavo West National Park, Kenya
Summary Tsetse populations and trypanosome infections were monitored at the Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary to assess the impact of trypanosomiasis on rhinoceros. High densities of Glossina pallidipes wereExpand

Attractiveness of black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) to tsetse flies (Glossina spp.) (Diptera: Glossinidae) and other biting flies
During translocations of black rhinoceros ( Diceros bicornis Linnaeus) in Kenya, we studied the relationships between the rhinoceros and biting flies. In trapping experiments, rhinoceros wasteExpand

Chitty's hypothesis and behaviour in subarctic red-backed voles Clethrionomys gapperi
Behavioural relations in Clethrionomys gapperi were studied in "peak" and "decline" years as a partial test of Chitty's polymorphic behaviour hypothesis. Behaviour was related to sex, age, and sexualExpand

The azurocyte: a new kind of leukocyte from wild voles (Microtus)
We have identified a new mammalian leukocyte from voles (Cricetidae, Microtus). This "azurocyte" is a large mononuclear cell with numerous cytoplasmic inclusions that stain purple with azure dyes.Expand
