Social Behavior, Reproduction, and Population Changes in the House Mouse (Mus musculus L.)

The present study of the interrelations of social behavior, reproduction, and population changes in the house mouse (Mus musculus L.) was undertaken in an effort to understand some of the aspects of

Phenomena associated with population density.

The data suggest that one or more factors besides testos- terone were responsible for stimulating preputial growth, and provides support for the that this species is basically regulated by physiologic regulation.

Raymond Pearl: The Biology of Population Growth

Raymond Pearl's conclusions on the rate of population growth include the following: (1) Populations grow according to the same mathematical law that individuals follow in the growth of their bodies.
