    prescribed fire on stand dynamics, wildlife habitat structure, and small mammal populations. Stand structure and development were documented and treatment differences analyzed. The effects of annual prescribed fire on small mammal abundance and habitat characteristics were compared across treatments at 3 intervals, pre-burn, post-. effects of a forest fire in a northern coniferous forest on small mammal diversity. Some have studied small mammal reaction to the blow down in the BWCA (Pauli et al ). Other studies examine small mammal diversity in general such as Kirkland and Findley’s () comparison of a Pennsylvanian forest to a forest in New Mexico.

    Small mammal species diversity changes from microhabitat to microhabitat (Syder and Best). Other factors such as time and natural disturbances contribute to population abundance and diversity (Snyder and Best ). Zwolak and Foresman () studied the immediate effects of a forest fire in a northern coniferous forest on small mammal : Zara John.   Australia's mammal populations are disappearing faster than anywhere else in the world, and there's reason to believe that the decline coincided with the collapse of Martu fire regimes.

    Minnesota small game hunters have recently voiced concerns that squirrel populations are in decline due to overharvest and liberal hunting regulations, namely on public hunting lands within daily travel distance of the St. Paul-Minneapolis metropolitan area. What's new. DNR will update Minnesota's wolf management plan in with help from a new wolf plan advisory committee, which is one of several ways the DNR will engage with the public on the plan.; The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service published a rule in March that considers the delisting of gray wolves as threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act in the contiguous United.

This list of mammals of Minnesota includes all the mammals native to Minnesota. It also shows their status in the wild.

There are 77 mammal species found in the state. The following tags are used to highlight each species' conservation status as assessed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature; those on the left are used here, those in the second column in some other articles.

• Determine differences in small mammal population sizes and densities between burned and unburned sites. • Determine differences in species assemblages of small mammal communities between burned and unburned sites. • Evaluate movements of small mammal populations overtime after a wildfire.

pine forests on small mammals could provide insight into the process of forest succession. We present preliminary results from a study in which we address questions concerning the effects of wildfire severity on the small mammal community and populations of deer mice and gray-collared chipmunks in northern Arizona ponderosa pine forests.

small mammals to changes in the forest ecosystem can help us understand the various aspects of succession, such as small mammal responses to habitat changes (Krefting and Ahlgren ).

The Blue Fire region offers a natural experiment in small mammal ecology and succession, such as small mammal community structure in response to forest fires. trapping is a standard tool in the study of small mammal populations.

response of many small mammal species is increased numbers, largely due to the surge in growth of her­ baceous and seed-producing plants. Much of the research on the effects of fire on small mammals was initiated because of the high small mam­ mal populations following timber harvests and the re­ sulting impacts on Size: 1MB.

ANTHONY, E. FORSMAN, G. GREEN, G. WITMER, AND S. NELSON ABSTRACT—Small mammals were trapped in riparian zones in young, mature, and old-growth coniferous forests during spring and summer of   We investigated the effects of an extensive wildfire (≈ 6, ha) in September on populations of 2 arboreal-scansorial small mammals—the gracile mouse opossum, Gracilinanus agilis, and the long-tailed climbing mouse, Rhipidomys macrurus—in 4 savanna woodland patches (1 burned, 3 unburned) of the highly threatened Brazilian by: Fire is an important ecological factor in semidesert grass-shrub community dynamics, but there is a lack of designed field experiments documenting effects on vegetation and small mammals.

Vegetation quantification. Forest stand-level characteristics have a greater influence on small mammal community composition than microhabitat characteristics in Sierra Nevada montane forests (Coppeto et al. ).Therefore, we estimated overstory canopy cover (%), oak tree canopy cover (%), and shrub cover (%) at the stand level for each trapping area, using a digital vegetation map with Cited by: Population dynamics of wolves in north-central Minnesota (Wildlife monographs) [Fuller, T.

Oli Major: Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Little is known about demographic parameters of the southern flying squirrel (Glaucomys volans) or factors influencing those parameters. We conducted a capture. We examined changes in small mammal habitat and densities of four small mammal species, including deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus), gray-collared chipmunks (Tamias cinereicollis), golden-mantled ground squirrels (Spermophilus lateralis), and Mexican woodrats (Neotoma mexicana), 2–3 years after thinning and prescribed fire treatments in ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) forests of Cited by: small mammal communities, population responses are not consistent among species or locations.
