Title: Long-distance Movements by Female White-footed Mice, Peromyscus leucopus, in Extensive Mixed-wood Forest
Author: Maier, Thomas J.;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: Two adult female White-footed Mice (Peromyscus leucopus) were recovered 14,730 m and 6840 m from where they were originally captured and tagged in central Massachusetts. Similar combinations of factors throughout an extensive forested landscape, including poor acorn (Quercus spp.) crops, high population densities of mice, and the exclusive social behaviour of other female mice, may have been responsible for these long distance movements.
