We used live-trapping and mark-recapture sampling in a robust design framework (Pollock, 1982) to estimate white-footed mouse
population density across seasons and years.
The change to the skull shape of the white-footed mouse
was found to be much more pronounced than the deer mouse.
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).
Several studies have focused on the bioenergetics of the white-footed mouse
and the golden mouse (14), (15), (24), (25), (26), (27).
I suspect what most people around here are calling a house mouse is, in fact, a white-footed mouse
At the native woodland, three species (hispid cotton rat, white-footed mouse
, and Mexican spiny pocket mouse) accounted for 88.
These include the deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus), white-footed mouse
Hantavirus antibodies were detected in one white-footed mouse
, which was also positive for virus RNA by RT-PCR.
The ticks that transmit Lyme disease in the Northeast and upper Midwest feed on a number of animals, but the host most likely to pass the Lyme-disease bacteria to young tick larvae in these regions is the white-footed mouse
(see "The Tick Life Cycle," Page 56).
Two kinds of Peromyscus occur there: the woodland deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus gracilis) and the white-footed mouse
The objective of this study was to determine the presence of the common deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus) and the white-footed mouse
(Peromyscus leucopus) on the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) reservation.
We evaluated whether white-footed mouse
foraging behavior corresponded to habitat differences in fitness by assessing patch-leaving rules of mice using identical, depletable foraging patches in each habitat (Brown 1988).
As with mean density, distributions of the proportion of white-footed mouse
captures per trap was not compared across successional phase with the C-vM test.
The white-footed mouse
, a common species, transfers the disease exceptionally well.
For several years, Ostfeld and IES chemical ecologist Clive Jones have been documenting a two-act drama whose lead character is the white-footed mouse
, a woodland creature with deer-colored fur, big eyes and ears, a long tail and a fondness for both acorns and gypsy moth pupae.
