Description: A study was conducted on the Ouachita and Ozark National Forests in Arkansas to evaluate the effects of alternative pine-hardwood reproduction cutting methods on small mammal abundance and diversity. Pretreatment characteristics of small mammal communities on 20 late-rotation mixed pine-hardwood stands in four physiographic zones of the Ouachita Mountain region of Arkansas are presented. Each physiographic zone (block) contained one replication of five treatments (four future treatments and an untreated control). The most commonly captured small mammal species were Peromyscus spp., Blarina carolinensis, and Ochrofomys nurruffi. Capture success varied between years but most likely reflected changes in probabilities of capture of individual animals and not fluctuations in community composition. Small mammal species richness, diversity, evenness, and relative abundance did not differ between physiographic zones or future treatments.
