Deer Mice (Peromyscus maniculatus) were live‐trapped and tracked across a gradient of shrub cover in shortgrass prairie to determine patterns of abundance, microhabitat use and movements.

In areas with few shrubs, mice preferred shrub microhabitats and their movement trails were relatively by:   Long-term field studies of small mammals are essential for establishing general, rather than year-specific, patterns of population abundance.

Short-term projects may allow detection of variability in abundance, but long-term ecological studies are necessary to investigate potential factors affecting variability (Matlack et al. ) and to help avoid erroneous conclusions about complex Cited by: In The Black-Tailed Prairie Dog, John L.

Small mammals were live-trapped 8 mo before and 8 mo after a prescribed burn. Vegetation sampling confirmed drastic reduction of cover after fire in the grassland sections of the prairie.

Abstract. Understanding determinants of local species diversity remains central to developing plans to preserve biodiversity.

In the continental United States, climate, grazing by large mammals, fire, and topography are important ecosystem drivers that structure North American tallgrass prairie, with major impacts on plant community composition and vegetation structure.

There about different species of mammal. They range in size from tiny shrews, only a few centimetres long, to the metre (foot) blue whale. Most mammals have four limbs and a covering of hair or fur. Sea mammals, such as whales and dolphins, have adapted to life in the water by losing their hair and forming their hind limbs into a tail.
