Long Term Vole Demographic Data and Selected Publications


This collection contains two primary sets of long-term vole demographic data files collected and maintained by Professor Lowell L. Getz (see vitae).

The starting point for this collection and information on restrictions on use of the data is Data and Procedures - Long term vole demographic data files. One set includes data obtained for the prairie vole, Microtus ochrogaster, and the meadow vole, M. pennsylvanicus, in three habitats (alfalfa, bluegrass, and tallgrass prairie) by trapping at monthly intervals for 25 years. The other data are for the prairie vole, from a study in which the population was trapped twice weekly for 63 months (essentially monitoring a population every 3.5 days for 63 months).

In addition, there are files giving monthly estimates of population density of the short-tailed shrew, Blarina brevicauda, for each of the three habitats.

Also included are selected published and unpublished manuscripts based on the data files.
