Resting and nesting in a small mammal : sleeping sites as a limiting resource for female grey mouse lemurs

  title={Resting and nesting in a small mammal : sleeping sites as a limiting resource for female grey mouse lemurs},
  author={Heike Lutermann and Luke Verburgt and Antje Rendigs},
Please cite this article in press as: Lutermann grey mouse lemurs, Animal Behaviour (2010 Animals spend a substantial proportion of their lives resting and consequently the choice of a sleeping site can dramatically affect an individual's fitness. Sleeping sites have been implicated in predator defence and thermoregulation and their distribution can affect breeding and social systems in small mammals. Sleeping sites may constitute a limiting resource for females which experience energetic… CONTINUE READING
