Abstract

A live-trap study of Peromyscus maniculatus, Perognathus hispidus and Onychomys leucogaster has yielded information on several population parameters. Minimum and exclusive boundry home ranges are reported as well as the effects of vegetative production and mulch production on the size of home range. Territoriality was evident in Peromyscus but was absent in the other two species studied. Onychomys and Perognathus showed definite habitat preference although all three species were randomly distributed in the communities in which they occurred. Onychomys were arranged in a paired manner.
