Mammal abundance of the Great Basin


This dataset follows coyotes, lagomorphs, and rodents from 1962-1993 in Idaho and Utah.

Dataset Location: Ecological Archives

Site Location: Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory, Idaho; Curlew Valley, Utah

Sites Georefferenced: No

Timespan: 1962-1993

Sampling Frequency: biannually (spring & fall)

Methods: Rodents were trapped with a 1 M-4 snap trap along a transect of 10 trap stations, baited with peanut butter and roalled oats. Indicies for rodent abundance calculate "catch per unit effort". Black-tailed jackrabbits were sampled for abundance using a walked transect and observational methods. Coyote methods changed throughout the course of the study.
