Between Year Comparison of Small Mammal Species Dynamics
Download Full Text
Long term biological studies spanning several years are rare but a key part in analyzing trends which may not be obvious in a single season of research. Here we examine data collected between 2017 and 2019 concerning small mammal populations dynamics at the St. Norbert College Field Station (De Pere, WI; Figure 1). Using a mark and recapture method, small mammals were measured and tagged to supply data representative of the populations residing around the field station. With this data, we determine how small mammal populations vary from year to year and respond to changes occurring in and around the ecosystem that the St. Norbert College Field Station offers. The main goal of this research project is to monitor the population dynamics and trends occurring over time. Through this work we aim to provide stakeholders with the necessary data to ensure proper conservation measures are taken
