Description: Small mammals were studied shortly after a large wildfire in northeast Minnesota. An average of only 16 as many small mammals were in three forest communities that had burned than were in comparable unburned areas. The greatest reduction was for the red-backed vole. An analysis of population attributes suggests that deer mice immigrated to the burned area. Small mammal succession and their impact on reforestation is predicted.
Keywords: southern red-back vole, deer mouse, masked shrew, rock vole, least chipmunk
