Its large toes protruded laterally as do those of the semiarboreal
peoples of Borneo, the Philippines and other remote regions where low types still persist.
For another semiarboreal
species, Reithrodontomys fulvescens, we found a significantly lower proportion of animals (<49% of individuals) used both levels (Fisher's exact test, P = 0.
The golden mouse and the white-footed mouse have similar body masses, nest site preferences, food preferences, periods of activity, home-range sizes; and both species are semiarboreal
(Goodpaster and Hoffmeister, 1954; Linzey, 1968; Linzey and Packard, 1977; Lackey, 1985; Barrett and Feldhamer, 2008).
This is unusual both for burrowing and unspecialized rodents, but typical of semiarboreal and arboreal species.
desmarestii was smaller and exhibited arboreal or semiarboreal habits.
White-footed mice (Peromyscus leucopus) are semiarboreal
, nocturnal, North American rodents that readily occupy wooden nestboxes in the northeastern part of their geographic range.
Some are more or less aquatic (the Nile monitor [Varanus niloticus], for instance), although they are generally semiarboreal
opportunists that take on any vertebrate they feel they can beat.
The title "Sylvilagus nuttallii: a semiarboreal
lagomorph" published in the Journal of Mammalogy is a good example.
Thus, its correct substrate utilization strategy formula should be TAr/SAr (terrestrial-arboreal/subterranean-arboreal), placing it in the group STAr of semiarboreal
rattus and Eliurus species are semiarboreal
or arboreal frugivores (in the broad sense) but the latter appear less granivorous and are more specialized for arboreal life.
Despite numerous comparisons of trapping methods, the effectiveness of techniques for trapping arboreal and semiarboreal
mammals has rarely been addressed.
The golden mouse (Ochrotomys nuttalli), a docile semiarboreal
rodent found throughout the southeastern United States (Goodpaster and Hoffmeister, 1984; Linzey and Packard, 1977), provides a model species to investigate how bioenergetics and food quality may relate to feeding behavior.
