Corridor use by small mammals: field measurement for three experimental types of Peromyscus leucopus

  title={Corridor use by small mammals: field measurement for three experimental types of Peromyscus leucopus},
  author={Gray Merriam and Alain Lanoue},
  journal={Landscape Ecology},
Eighteen mice of each of 3 types were radio-tagged and released at 6 standard points in farmland fencerows. Mice were residents (trapped on site) or translocated from distant forest or from distant corn fields. Of total (net) distance moved, most was in fencerows; 77% for residents, 83% for mice translocated from cropland and 92% for mice translocated from forest. Structurally complex fencerows were preferred significantly over intermediate or simple structures by all types of mice. Time spent… CONTINUE READING
