We assigned age-categories to specimens of pocket gopher
based on reproductive condition and, when necessary, size.
The purpose of this study was to determine plant species composition on pocket gopher
mound in a mature dry sand prairie and a disturbed dry sand prairie at the Henry Allan Gleason Nature Preserve, Mason County, Illinois.
In this case, management includes activities such as controlling invasive plants; using prescribed fire to restore historic natural ecological processes; growing, planting, and seeding native plants; breeding and reintroducing butterflies; reintroducing pocket gophers

In addition, pocket gopher
