Phylogeography of the western jumping mouse (Zapus princeps) detects deep and persistent allopatry with expansion
Analysis of spatial demography, historical biogeography, and niche divergence of the western jumping mouse (Zapus princeps) using molecular sequence data from mitochondrial and nuclear DNA recovered from 7 of the 11 subspecies in western North America found wide overlap in niches for Sierran jumping mice and Z. princeps and species distribution models mirror these phylogenetic signatures.
Use of Barn Owl (Tyto alba) Pellets as a Potential Method to Study a Rare Rodent Population in Northeastern New Mexico
Examination of owl pellets appears to be a poor survey tool for Zapus, perhaps due to the jumping mouse's short summer active period, natural low population density, and preference for tall, dense riparian vegetation.
The relative influence of change in habitat and climate on elevation range limits in small mammals in Yosemite National Park, California, U.S.A.
Climate generally had a stronger effect on range dynamics than habitat, especially at higher elevations; however, at mid-elevations SDMs showed an increasing importance of habitat on range shifts at these elevations, in the cases range shifts were reliably predicted.
Catalog of Type Specimens of Recent Mammals: Rodentia (Myomorpha, Anomaluromorpha, and Hystricomorpha) in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution
This catalog presents an annotated list of these holdings comprised of 905 holotypes, 16 lectotypes, 8 syntypes (48 specimens), and 2 neotypes and includes 44 specimens that are part of syntype series that should be in the collection but cannot be found or are now known to be in other collections.
A short review and worldwide list of wild albino rodents with the first report of albinism in Coendou rufescens (Rodentia: Erethizontidae)
The first albino record from the Neotropics for this group is reported, a stump-tailed porcupine (Coendou rufescens) in northern Ecuador.
The meadow jumping mouse genome and transcriptome suggest mechanisms of hibernation
It is illustrated that mammalian hibernation requires adaptation at all levels of organismal form and function and lay the groundwork for future study of hibernation phenotypes.


Home Range of the Western Jumping Mouse Zapus-Princeps in the Colorado Rocky Mountains USA
Western jumping mice, Zapiis princeps, were live-trapped during the summer of 1975 in an aspen forest in the Front Range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, and it was discovered that males had larger home ranges than females.
Early Pleistocene zapodid rodents from the Java Local Fauna of north-central South Dakota
Zapodid rodents are described from the early Pleistocene Java Local Fauna, Walworth County, South Dakota, including a new species of Zapus related to the extinct Z. sandersi and two additional zapodids represent new genera and species.
A Study Of The Idaho Jumping Mice Of The Genus Zapus, With Remarks On A Few Specimens From British Columbia
Recent examination of specimens indicates that five geographic races of this animal occur within the state, and reference to the accompanying map shows the species to be wide-ranging throughout the mountainous regions to the north and east of the Snake Plains.
Four species of Zapus from four states for Coccidia were examined and two eimerians were found, Eimeria zapi Gerard, Chobotar, and Ernst, 1977, and a form which is described here as new, which is only the second eimerian reported from Zapus spp.
Population Dynamics of the Western Jumping Mouse (Zapus Princeps) During a Four-Year Study
A live-trapping study of the western jumping mouse was conducted in a willow-sedge bog adjacent to a montane stream in the Laramie Mountain Range of southeastern Wyoming from August 1965 through June 1969, where some jumping mice exhibited remarkable longevity for small rodents, surviving as long as 4 years.
A New Pleistocene Fauna from Meade County, Kansas
From the deposit of an exposure in Meade county, Kansas, a number of vertebrates not previously reported from the Pleistocene fauna of Kansas are reported.
Ecological Distributin of Mice in the Medicine Bow Mountains of Wyoming
The distribution of six species of native mice with regard to plant communities, vegetative ground cover, and proximity of water was studied in the Medicine Bow Range of Southern Wyoming. The eight
Dental Evolution of Zapus
Lower dentitions of fossil Zapus from the Upper Pliocene and Pleistocene of Kansas and Oklahoma were studied, using characters reliable in separating Recent species. Of the two species present in the
Ecological strategies of a small hibernator, the western jumping mouse Zapus princeps
The seasonal emergence, reproduction, diet, fat deposition, and immergence of six wild populations of Zapus princeps from elevations of 1860–2900 m were studied by trap–recapture methods and
Biogeography of great basin mammals: Paradigm lost?
Biogeographic relationships of mammals occurring on mountaintops of the Great Basin of western North America are re-examined on the basis of newly acquired information, and a relatively weak pattern is revealed between species richness and island size.
