Abstract We provide positive documentation of multiple litters in a single year born to an individual Glaucomys sabrinus (Northern Flying Squirrel) residing in southern Ontario, Canada. The first litter, consisting of four young, was observed on May 18, 2003. The second litter, consisting of five young, was observed 15 weeks later on September 2, 2003. The individual female, identified by a unique ear-tag, established natal nests in different nearby nest boxes. Our finding suggests the Northern… Expand
Evidence of Multiple Annual Litters in Glaucomys sabrinus (Northern Flying Squirrel)
TLDR
The data suggest that polyestry in Northern Flying Squirrels may be relatively common in some years, and that lactating and pregnant at the same time in these animals is relatively common. Expand
Evolution of Sexual Size Dimorphism in Squirrels
TLDR
Comparative phylogenetic analyses revealed that patterns of gliding morphostructure and dimorphism are deeply rooted within the phylogenetic history of this tribe. Expand

Response of northern flying squirrels to supplementary dens
TLDR
Dens were not the overriding factor limiting flying squirrels in second-growth Douglas-fir forest in the Puget Trough of Washington, and a complex of factors seemed to be operating, and limiting management focus to one or 2 factors may not produce desirable results. Expand
Den trees used by northern flying squirrels (Glaucomys sabrinus) in southeastern Alaska
TLDR
Assessment of den sites used by northern flying squirrels in southeastern Alaska found they preferentially used trees with indicators of cavity presence, selecting for snags and for larger diameter trees with bole entries, conks, abundant mistletoe, and dead tops. Expand

Abstract Little is known about nest use by flying squirrels (Glaucomys) in partially harvested forests, especially for northerly populations where cavity use is prevalent. We used radiotelemetry toExpand

TLDR
Effect of food and den site supplementation on population dynamics of Glaucomys sabrinus and Tamiasciurus douglasii in mature second-growth forests in British Columbia, Canada was tested and availability of food appeared to have a significant effect on their populations. Expand
The Use of Nest Boxes to Sample Arboreal Vertebrates
TLDR
It is concluded that nest boxes are a useful means of surveying for cavity-dwelling species and recommended a protocol that uses different size nest boxes at varying heights to accurately survey a traditionally under-sampled component of forest ecosystems, those species using tree cavities. Expand
