To assess species-level corridor effects, we looked at how Peromyscus oreas, Clethrionomys gapperi, Sorex monticolus, Sorex trowbridgii, Tamiasciurus douglasii, and Glaucomys sabrinus responded to the above landscape and environmental factors.
1996) could not demonstrate that inbreeding depression is significantly lower in leucocephalus than in other populations of Peromyscus, the further analyses presented in this paper suggest that this island population may be initially less impacted by inbreeding than are mainland populations.
Clethrionomys density increased at different rates in different locations (sample x location interaction, Table 3), but, for Peromyscus only, the interaction between habitat and location varied with density (the habitat x sample x location interaction, Table 4).
The GIS-based habitat analyses detected virtually all well-grown forest stands in the area of interest that could potentially harbor large Peromyscus populations, as confirmed by groundtruthing.
Previous studies have shown that the diet of Long-eared Owls in the Midwest consists primarily of voles (genus Microtus) and also includes significant numbers of deer mice (Peromyscus) (Errington, 1932; Kirkpatrick and Conway, 1947).

Carleton and Huckaby (1975) described Peromyscus mayensis from the Sierra, and provided a list of small mammals associated with that species.
Both species of Peromyscus, the prairie deer mouse, mentioned above, and the woodland form, the white-footed mouse, Peromyscus leucopus, were taken at Goose Pond.
