We used a spatial capture-recapture approach (SCR; Efford, 2004; Efford el al., 2004; Efford el al, 2007; Royle et al., 2014) to model the effect of distance from forest-field edge on white-footed mouse
density (individuals/ha) across primary sessions.
At the same time, the white-footed mouse
has been moving farther north as winters get milder - at a rate of around 11 kilometers a year, the researchers estimate.
Because they are primarily woodland forms, the short-tailed shrew and white-footed mouse
were taken in relatively low numbers at Goose Pond.
(1.) Gibbes L and Barrett GW: Diet resource partitioning between the golden mouse (Ochrotomys nuttalli) and the white-footed mouse
At the native woodland, three species (hispid cotton rat, white-footed mouse
, and Mexican spiny pocket mouse) accounted for 88.0% of the individuals captured.

microti shares the same vector tick (Ixodes scapularis), reservoir rodent (the white-footed mouse
), and definitive host (the white-tailed deer) as Borrelia burgdorferi, the Lyme disease spirochete, the pathogens are unrelated and treatment for the two conditions differs.
The two infections share the same vector tick (Ixodes scapularis), reservoir rodent (the white-footed mouse
), and definitive host (the white-tailed deer).
Two kinds of Peromyscus occur there: the woodland deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus gracilis) and the white-footed mouse
The objective of this study was to determine the presence of the common deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus) and the white-footed mouse
(Peromyscus leucopus) on the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) reservation.
We evaluated whether white-footed mouse
foraging behavior corresponded to habitat differences in fitness by assessing patch-leaving rules of mice using identical, depletable foraging patches in each habitat (Brown 1988).
density and distribution.--White footed-mouse density varied with block size during the late phase (Fig.
