Mammals were collected in northeastern Jewell County, Kansas, in 1963 and 1964 to obtain information as follows: (1) what species occurred in this area, (2) their distribution in the area, and (3) some knowledge of their preference of habitats. In an attempt to collect all species of mammals in the area, all habitats were trapped by means appropriate for the possible species. Each site from which mammals were recorded was described in general terms; and weather data, as well as specific notes on habitat, were usually recorded each time the traps were checked. Thirty-seven mammalian species representing 30 genera, 17 families, and seven orders were collected from the seven types of major habitats in the area. Most of these species showed some habitat preference, but this preference varied from species that were restricted to only one of the vegetational types to those that occupied nearly all of the available habitats.
