The following efforts were for 6 d unless abbreviated due to disturbance by carnivores: monitored (M) sites in VNP (Table 2), and sites inventoried for eastern heather vole (Phenacomys ungava) and northern bog lemming (Synaptomys borealis) (see below).
No rock vole was taken on any of the 25 bogs inventoried for the northern bog lemming.
Sparks used mousetraps in March 2007 to capture 42 small mammals, white-footed mouse (14 individuals), prairie deer mouse (8), house mouse (8), prairie vole (4), meadow vole (4), and southern bog lemming (1).
The higher numbers for the least shrew and the bog lemming at Goose Pond are probably, at least partly, attributable to the fact there is a great deal of dry open grassland at Goose Pond.
The proposed park shelters moose, peregrine falcons, spruce grouse, loons, northern bog lemmings
, and pine martens now, and the area once provided habitat for wolves, lynx, and catamounts.
Distribution and status of the southern bog lemming, Synaptomys cooperi, in southeastern Virginia.
Despite broad distributions in eastern North America, southern bog lemmings (Synaptomys cooperi) and woodland voles [Microtus (Pitymys) pinetorum] are less studied than other arvicoline rodents, primarily because their populations are patchy, often intermittently present, and usually low in density.
However, it was a very interesting assemblage as it might resemble that of drier portions of earlier prairie in this area, and it contained two species relatively uncommon in surveys, the least shrew and the bog lemming.
pinetorum), bog lemming (Synaptomys cooperi), house mouse (Mus musculus), and meadow jumping mouse (Zapus hudsonius).
All of these vertebrates presently occur in Mackinac County, Michigan, with the exception of the Northern Bog Lemming
, Synaptomys cf.
The southern bog lemming is a small vole that occurs in the northeastern portion of North America, extending as far west as Kansas and Nebraska (Linzey, 1983; Linzey and Cranford, 1984).
Habitat selection in the southern bog lemming, Synaptomys cooperi, and the meadow vole, Microtus pennsylvanicus, in Virginia.
New species recorded by Rand & Rand were big brown bat, southern flying squirrel, southern bog lemming and least weasel, so the new total specie s number from the area was 34.
Signs observed at INDU in this habitat could have been from the bog lemming, Synaptomys cooperi.
No significant trap "preference" was shown for northern short-tailed shrews or southern bog lemmings
