Abstract

Microhabitat associations among small mammals and between mammals and ground cover were investigated in 1989 as part of a federal program to survey the ecology of military installations. The survey was conducted on Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site, Colorado, and was designed to sample all types of habitats. Habitats sampled included grasslands, shrub lands, and woodlands. Analyses using descriptive statistics, ordination, and correlation coefficients revealed significant associations among 11 of 14 species of mammals trapped and between the mammals and 19 of 24 species of plants recorded. The significant associations were compared with available literature. Probable reasons for each of the significant associations were briefly discussed.
