  • Abstract The dispersion, age structure and diet of stoats (Mustela erminea) in beech forest in the Borland and Grebe Valleys, Fiordland National Park, were examined during December and January 2000/01, 20 months after a heavy seed‐fall in 1999. Thirty trap stations were set along a 38‐km transect through almost continuous beech forest, at least 1 km apart. Mice were very scarce (<1 capture per 100 trap nights, C/100TN) along two standard index lines placed at either end of the transect… CONTINUE READING
