Title: Arboreal nests of Phenacomys longgicaudus in Oregon.

Author: Gillesberg, A.M.; Carey, A.B.;

Date: 1991

Source: Journal of Mammalogy. 72(4): 784-787

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Searching felled trees proved effective for finding nests of Phenacomys longicaudus; 117 nests were found in 50 trees. Nests were located throughout the live crowns, but were concentrated in the lower two-thirds of the canopy. Abundance of nests increased with tree size; old-growth forests provide optimum habitat.
