ARTHROPODS (ARATHROPODA: ARACHNIDA AND INSECTA) ASSOCIATED WITH THE NESTS OF NEOTOMA
MEXICANA (MAMMALIA: RODENTIA) FROM SAN MIGUEL DE ALLENDE, GUANAJUATO, MEXICO
miyamotoi infects woodrats (Neotoma
fuscipes), brush mice (Peromyscus boylii), and California mice (P.
Metagenomic sequencing provides insights into microbial detoxification in the guts of small mammalian herbivores (Neotoma
hispidus, 11 Western Harvest Mice (Reithrodontomys megalotis), 1 Southern Plains Woodrat (Neotoma
micropus), and 1 Ord's Kangaroo Rat (Dipodomys ordii).

Some taxa which have been studied include viverrids (Atilax, Bdeogal, Civettictis, Genetta, Helogale, Herpestes, Ichneumia, Mungos, and Nandinia) from eastern Africa (Taylor 1971), water voles (Arvicola terrestris monticola) from Europe (Ventura and Gotzens 2005), squirrels (Glaucomys sabrinus, Arborimus logicaudus, Tamiasciurus douglasii, Sciurus griseus, and Tamias spp.) and woodrats (Neotoma
spp.) from Oregon (Forsman and Otto 2006), and Virginia opossums (Didelphis virginiana) from Georgia (Mead and Patterson 2009).
Annual Activity Patterns of the Eastern Woodrat (Neotoma
floridana) in Western Tennessee.
stephensi packrats hoard only juniper twigs, which make up 90 percent of their diet despite the plant's toxicity.
For example, the whitethroated woodrat Neotoma
albigula experienced elevated body temperature and resting metabolic rate when consuming PSMs at increased temperature, which increased the thermoregulatory costs of its diet (Mclister et al.
I admit belonging metaphorically to the species neotoma
cinerea, the North American pack rat--a claim readily verified by those who know me.
