Title: Home range use by swamp rabbits (Sylvilagus aquaticus) in a frequently inundated bottomland forest

Author: Zollner, Patrick A.; Smith, Winston P.; Brennan, Leonard A.;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Home range size of six swamp rabbits in south-central Arkansas was estilnated by radio-telemetry from February 1991 through March 1992. The average home range size was significantly larger than previously reported estimates. This difference is partly attributable to the large number of observations per rabbit in our study, but may also be explained by our inclusion of numerous locations of swamp rabbits during periods of deep inundation. All of the individual rabbits tracked used different areas when the study site was flooded. These results provide the first quantitative description of the response of swamp rabbits to flooding.
