Abstract Recently, Patterson and Patterson (2010) documented a single Glaucomys sabrinus (Northern Flying Squirrel) having two litters in a single year in southern Ontario, Canada. We confirm this record and provide evidence for two new observations; 1) Northern Flying Squirrels will attempt a second litter after raising a successful first litter; and 2) Northern Flying Squirrels can be lactating and pregnant at the same time. We also present data on the frequency of polyestry in a single year… Expand

Multiple Annual Litters in Glaucomys sabrinus (Northern Flying Squirrel)
TLDR
Positive documentation of multiple litters in a single year born to an individual Glaucomys sabrinus (Northern Flying Squirrel) residing in southern Ontario, Canada is provided. Expand
Communal Nesting and Reproduction of the Southern Flying Squirrel in Montane Virginia
TLDR
The hypothesis that reproductive activity of Southern Flying Squirrels varies by latitude and is primarily determined by photoperiod length is supported, at least in temperate areas. Expand
Breeding Biology and Seasonal Capture Success of Northern Flying Squirrels (Glaucomys sabrinus) and Red Squirrels (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus) in Southern New Brunswick
TLDR
Flying squirrel capture success was considerably greater in summer and fall than in winter and spring, while red squirrels were caught more often in spring and summer than fall and winter. Expand
Estimated persistence of northern flying squirrel populations in temperate rain forest fragments of Southeast Alaska
TLDR
It was concluded that it was unlikely that small isolated habitat reserves could sustain populations of flying squirrels for >25 years in the absence of immigration and dispersal among small reserves is critical to ensure that they function to support metapopulations of northern flying Squirrels.

TO DOUBLE-BROOD OR NOT? INDIVIDUAL VARIATION IN THE REPRODUCTIVE EFFORT IN BLACK-THROATED BLUE WARBLERS (DENDROICA CAERULESCENS)
TLDR
Factors influencing whether female Blackthroated Blue Warblers initiated additional nests after a successful breeding attempt (i.e. double-brooded) were evaluated, indicating that age contributed to individual variation in reproductive output. Expand
Population dynamics of Glaucomys sabrinus and Tamiasciurus douglasii in old-growth and second-growth stands of coastal coniferous forest
TLDR
Habitat preferences and population dynamics of northern flying squirrels and Douglas squirrels were examined in old-growth and new-growth areas. Expand
Reproductive effort in squirrels: ecological, phylogenetic, allometric, and latitudinal patterns
TLDR
Specific environmental influences on reproduction in squirrels occur at lower taxonomic levels within the framework of a broad reproductive pattern set by earlier radiations into particular locomotor and nest-site niches, and reproductive patterns differ among subfamilies. Expand
Litter size and latitude in North American mammals.
TLDR
To determine if this phenomenon of fluctuations of mammal populations in the higher latitudes of the northern hemisphere was evident in other mammals, a search was made of the literature concerning litter size of mammals of North America for the snowshoe hare and the opossum. Expand
Effects of landscape composition and configuration on northern flying squirrels in a forest mosaic
Abstract Habitat loss and sometimes habitat fragmentation per se affect species survival, reproduction, dispersal, abundance and distribution. However, understanding the independent effects ofExpand
