Bi-weekly live-trapping programs in six natural habitat types and in...
Interim report on small mammal populations and related tree damage in the AOSERP study area, October and November 1977Download
The afforestation program in the Athabasca Oil Sands area has been only moderately successful, because of the high mortality of the planted seedlings--much of which Is believed to be the result of high levels of small mammal damage. The objectives of the present study were: (1) to determine the...
A study of small rodent populations, habitat use, and amounts of small mammal damage to woody-stemmed plants on reclamation areas of Suncor Inc. lease was begun in July 1978 and continued until November 1979. Three species of small rodent were present in these areas; Microtus pennsylvanicus was...
A study of small mammal populations (small rodents and snowshoe hares), habitat use, small rodent diets, and small mammal damage in natural forest and successional communities was begun in June 1978 and continued until November 1979. Based on population sizes and distributions, four species of...
This report represents the findings of a literature review carried out on small mammal damage to revegetation areas and on small mammal control procedures. The information gathered in this review was used to help design a project aimed at reducing small mammal damage to reclamation research...
