Chromosome studies of certain pocket mice genus Perognathus (Rodentia: Heteromyidae).
Many studies on the growth and development of rodents have been conducted on Spermophilus belding belding (Morton and Tung, 1971), Scotinomys teguina (Hooper and Carleton, 1976), Perognathus longimembris (Heteromyidae) and Rattus exulans (Murinae) (Creighton and Strauss, 1986), Spermophilus mollisand (Rickart, 1986), Apodemus semotus (Lin et al., 1993), Lagurus lagurus (Jiang et al., 1995) as well as other animals like Hydrochaeris hydrochaeris (Kanashiro et al., 2009), Eubalaena glacialis (Fortune et al., 2012), Angus pasture-fed cows (Goldberg and Ravagnolo, 2015), Unio terminalis delicates (Sereflisan and Gokce, 2016).

La distribucion local del tlalcoyote depende de la presencia de roedores de habitos subterraneos (tuzas de los generos Cratogeomys, Geomys y Thomomys; ratas y ratones de abazones de los generos Chaetodipus, Dipodomys y Perognathus; y ardillas terrestres y perros de la pradera, generos Cynomys, Otospermophilus y Xerospermophilus).
Pocket mice (Chaetodipus fallax and Perognathus longimembris) and pinyon mice (Peromyscus trueii) dismantled fruits and harvested loose seeds but did not appear to move them although they readily harvested loose seeds.
The most common mainland species were long-tailed pocket mice (Perognathus formosus; 27.6% of all captures), Great Basin pocket mice (P parvus; 24.2%), and deer mice (21.2%).
2010), no individuals from the three species (Chaetodipus hispidus, Dipodomys ordii, and Perognathus merriami) of the family Heteromyidae captured in this study tested positive for arenavirus antibodies.
By contrast, species of pocket mice (family Heteromyidae, genera Perognathus and Chaetodipus) were relatively abundant in the sparser grasslands still being grazed by livestock.
It is also home to 14 threatened and endangered animal species including San Diego fairy shrimp (Branchinecta sandiegonensis), Riverside fairy shrimp (Streptocephalus wootori), arroyo southwestern toad (Bufo californicus microscaphus), steelhead salmon (Oncorhynchus mykiss), tidewater goby (Eucyclogobius newberry), Stephens' kangaroo rat (Dipodomys stephensi), Pacific pocket mouse (Perognathus longimembris pacificus), and seven species of birds.
