We searched for nests of Phenacomys longicaudus in a 30-m radius from the center of each reference plot.
Analysis of variance was used to test for significant differences between Phenacomys longicaudus habitats and unoccupied sites for tree diameter, snag height and diameter, and length and diameter of downed logs.
Discriminant-function analysis was used for noncategorical variables to discriminate between Phenacomys longicaudus habitats and unoccupied sites.
One hundred and forty-eight nest sites were examined, 97 by climbing, for evidence of use by Phenacomys longicaudus.
Phenacomys longicaudus habitats were characterized by higher percent canopy cover, more stumps, lower elevation and fewer snags than unoccupied habitats (Table 1).
