-- Geographic and nongeographic variation of deer mice, Peromyscus maniculatus
, were statistically analyzed to determine the systematic status of populations of this species on the Llano Estacado and in adjacent areas of Texas.
Paralelamente, el promedio de densidades maximas de ratones del campo (Peromyscus maniculatus
) aumento en 2004 (desde 0,7-7,3 individuos/ha hasta 65,7-112,7 individuos/ha).
Kaufman and Kaufman (1994) also suggest that the patterns in mass change observed in prairie deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus
) were likely due to water stress rather than to behavioral stress or food deprivation, but failed to quantify such behaviors.
Genetic and phylogenetic analysis of hantaviral sequences amplified from archival tissues of deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus
nubiterrae) captured in the eastern United States.
Hantavirus antibodies were present in 32 (30%) of 107 deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus
), one (9%) of 11 pinon mice (P.
Mammals known from the study area include Dipodomys ordii (Ord's kangaroo rat), Onychomys leucogaster (northern grasshopper mouse), Perognathus flavescens (plains pocket mouse), Peromyscus maniculatus
(deer mouse), Reithrodontomys montanus (plains harvest mouse), Sigmodon hispidus (hispid cotton rat), Neotoma micropus (wood rat), Spermophilus spilosoma (spotted ground squirrel), Canis latrans (coyote), Taxidea taxus (badger), Lepus californicus (black-tailed jackrabbit), Sylvilagus audubonii (desert cottontail), Antilocapra americana (pronghorn), and Bos bos (cattle).
Abundance of the North American deermouse (Peromyscus maniculatus
) and white-footed deermouse (P.
Dispersal and inbreeding avoidance in the white-footed mouse, Peromyscus maniculatus
The deer mouse, Peromyscus maniculatus
, has been identified as the primary rodent reservoir of a newly identified virus responsible for the 1993 outbreak of severe respiratory disease in the southwestern United States (1).
Of 42 rodents tested, 12 (29%) had serologic evidence of hantavirus infection; all 12 were of the species Peromyscus maniculatus
Our single specimen was taken on a creosote-dominated alluvial slope, where Dipodomys merriami and Peromyscus maniculatus
were common, 3.3 mi.
From 1996 through 1999, 35 deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus
) were captured in 25 urban and suburban homes in southwestern Montana.
