Title: Estimating philopatry and natal dispersal of microtine rodents through intensive live-trapping at nests of social groups

Abstract: Estimates of philopatry and natal dispersal of the prairie vole, Microtus ochrogaster, determined by intensive live-trapping at social group nests were assessed by comparison of estimates when a grid pattern within the area was also trapped, the periphery of the group home ranges was trapped, and when only a few and a large number of nests were being monitored. Several analyses confirmed that the measures of philopatry and natal dispersal were reliable. Although labor intensive, the protocol used is less so than any other system that provides comparable amounts of data, and it does not require expensive equipment.
