Many distributions reflect the clear imprint of the late Wisconsinan glaciation (Smith, 1957), such as the relictual distributions of the southern bog lemming
(Synaptomys cooperi) (Wetzel, 1955; Connor, 1959) and the persistence of the boreal red-backed vole (Myodes gapperi) on mountaintops in New Mexico (Bailey, 1932).
There are two distinct versions (different color phases and poses) of each of 11 small mammals that generally live in grasslands, along creeks/ponds, or woodland edges of Midwestern habitats: Eastern Chipmunk, Franklin's Ground Squirrel, Eastern Mole, Plains Pocket Gopher, Thirteen Lined Ground Squirrel, Northern Short Tailed Shrew, Southern Bog Lemming
, Meadow Vole, Meadow Jumping Mouse, Deer Mouse, and Northern Grasshopper Mouse.
The most interesting species of small mammal known from Goose Pond were the least shrew (discussed above), the bog lemming
, Synaptomys cooperi (one taken by us and one taken by Dale Sparks), and the least weasel, Mustela nivalis.
There are other possible environmental issues, such as impacts on Bicknell's thrush and the northern bog lemming
, as well as the project's location in a relatively undeveloped forestland area.
Mictomys borealis (Northern Bog Lemming
) and the Wisconsin paleoecology of the east-central Great Basin.
Such species as moose, deer, black bear, beaver, loon, broad-winged hawk, blue-spotted salamander, and brook trout are common in the proposed park and preserve, which also shelters rarer creatures such as the bald eagle, Canada lynx, pine marten, northern bog lemming
, blueback trout, and Atlantic salmon.
Invasion of the meadow vole (Microtus pennsylvanicus) in southeastern Kentucky and its possible impact on the southern bog lemming
pinetorum), bog lemming
(Synaptomys cooperi), house mouse (Mus musculus), and meadow jumping mouse (Zapus hudsonius).
Remarks: PM reports that the upper right M3 is similar in size to that of Synaptomys borealis, the Northern Bog Lemming
, which is a larger species than S.
-- A new species of Eimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) was found in the feces and intestinal contents of the southern bog lemming
, Synaptomys cooperi Baird, 1858, from St.
He listed six species as probably occurring: star-nosed mole, least shrew, masked shrew, southern bog lemming
, American badger and coyote.
No significant trap "preference" was shown for northern short-tailed shrews or southern bog lemmings
