striatus lysteri (Richardson).
We also captured four Merriam's chipmunks (Eutamias
merriami), four California ground squirrels (Otospermophilus beecheyi), one big-eared woodrat (Neotoma macrotis) and one brush mouse (Peromyscus boylii).
Occassionally, other species such as Neotoma fuscipes, Sylvilagus spp., Eutamias
townsendi, Scapanus townsendi, Rattus norvegicus, and Zapus trinotatus were taken.
Three new chipmunks of the genus Eutamias

sibiricus, Meriones lybicus, and Clethrionomys rufocanus, were positive for F.
The third discriminant function increased with the incidence of Townsend's chipmunks (Eutamias
townsendii), and decreased with the incidence of black bears (Ursus americanus) (standardized coefficients [less than]0.53 and -0.45, respectively; all other coefficients [less than]0.35; eigenvalue and percentage of overall dispersion = 0.18 and 4%).
