Habitat preference of the endemic tawny deermouse
(Peromyscus perfulvus), a species of conservation concern.
Species abundance distribution was found to be the greatest for the white-footed deermouse
We performed separate Rayleigh's tests for North American deermouse
captured in edge and forested habitats to determine whether direction of movements differed with distance from the right-of-way.
However, one saltcedar grid (saltcedar 1) had a high diversity index due to even numbers of captures of the white-footed deermouse
