Title: Effectiveness of multiple-capture live traps for field behavioral studies of microtine rodents

Abstract: Use of multiple-capture live traps in routine demographic studies provides data concerning social organization and potential interactions between individuals, data not otherwise available from single-capture traps. Multiple-capture traps are especially effective in field behavioral studies in which large numbers of animals occupying a single nest must be monitored at frequent intervals. Burt multiple-capture traps are shown to be at least as efficient as Longworth single-capture traps in capturing both Microtus ochrogaster and Microtus pennsylvanicus.
