Zapus hudsonius is unwilling to cross even small areas with little or no cover (Quimby, 1951).

Rarity and coexistence of a small hibernator, Zapus hudsonius, with fluctuating populations of Microtus pennsylvanicus in the grasslands of southern Ontario.
Population attributes related to the life-history strategy of hibernating Zapus hudsonius.
The major species in the dry old field were Cryptotis parva (16), Microtus ochrogaster (9), and Blarina brevicauda (7), Zapus hudsonius (3), and single individuals of Peromyscus leucopus, Synaptomys cooperi, and M.

We also captured 123 Blarina carolinensis (southern short-tailed shrews), 12 house mice, 10 Microtus pinetorum (pine voles), 5 Oryzomys palustris (rice rats), 4 Microtus ochrogaster (prairie voles) and 1 Zapus hudsonius (meadow jumping mouse).
Good quality habitat for Zapus hudsonius preblei typically is near open water with multi-layered vertical structure such as shrubs and grasses and high flora species richness (Bakeman, 1997; Clippinger, 2002; Trainor et al.
Mitigation efforts for Zapus hudsonius preblei have commonly included habitat restoration and creation in riparian and grassland ecosystems.
This study was designed to evaluate the short-term behavioral response of radiotagged Zapus hudsonius preblei to artificially restored habitat by experimentally supplementing adjacent areas of poor habitat, where the mouse was never detected during previous monitoring, with cover and food (treatment plots).

05) fewer small mammals that might serve as prey for large snake species in Hardwood than in Cut, with Zapus hudsonius and Microtus pennsylvanicus being significantly less abundant in Hardwood than in Cut (Table 2).
05) different between Pine and Burn, although Blarina brevicauda and Peromyscus leucopus were significantly more abundant and Zapus hudsonius less abundant in Pine than in Burn (Table 2).
Because only the abundance of Zapus hudsonius and not total small mammals differed between Pine and Burn, perhaps the higher abundance of this mammal species or even thermoregulation were significant factors in use of Burn by these snake species.
