The deer mouse is described as a small rodent that lives in the Americas and is closely related to the white-footed mouse, Peromyscus leucopus. Anim. Behav., ,15, EVIDENCE FOR THE USE OF VISION IN DIURNAL ORIENTATION OF THE BAT MYOTIS AUSTRORIPARIUS BY JAMES N.

LAYNE Section of Ecology and Systematics, Division of Biological Sciences, Cornell University, Ithaca, N. Homing behaviour has been studied in a number of species of bats in the suborder Microchiroptera (Davis, ), but the orientational.

Discussion The present study indicates that animals with an established home area are capable Of orienta- tion, and hence of homing, after having moved away from or been experimentally removed from their home area.

Physical Characteristics: The cotton mouse is the largest and heaviest of the three species of Peromyscus found in the park. In appearance, it is very similar to the white-footed mouse (Peromyscus leucopus).

Access to food resources and predation are common limiting factors. A total of rodents was collected in 4 regions of South Carolina from July through December Eight species were collected, including cotton mouse, hispid cotton rat, eastern woodrat, marsh rice rat, white-footed mouse, eastern harvest mouse, golden mouse, and black rat.

Of the 1, ticks recovered from these hosts, Ixodes minor Neumann, including larvae, nymphs, and adults, was. The white-footed mouse (Peromyscus leucopus) harbored the most species of parasitic arthropods (8), followed by the cotton mouse (Peromyscus gossypinus - 6), and the cotton rat (Sigmodon hispidus.

The rare ospC allele L was detected in 30% of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto strains cultured from a tick species, Ixodes affinis, and two rodent host species, Peromyscus gossypinus and Sigmodon hispidus, collected in a coastal plain area of Georgia and South Carolina, in.

Abstract. In comparison with what has been seen in previous chapters, the study of homing behaviour in mammals is marked by a steady reference to the concept of home range (see Chapter 1), i.e. ‘the area over which an animal normally travels in pursuit of its routine activities’ (Jewell, ) during a stated period of time (e.g.

GRIFFO, JR.' Department of Biology, University of Florida, Gainesville ABSTRACT: Homing success of animals released in unnatural habitat (golf course) adjacent to their home area was less than in natural areas at comparable distances.

In natural areas, males homed with greater. The cotton mouse, Peromyscus gossypinus, is known to inhabit undisturbed riparian woodlands and swamps of the southeastern coastal plain. Previous studies by researchers on the incidence of botfly parasitism on white-footed mice in eastern forests have shown variability depending on season, preliminary site evaluations, and year the study was conducted.

Peromyscus is a genus of are commonly referred to as deermice. They are New World mice only distantly related to the common house and laboratory mouse, Mus this relative, Peromyscus species are distinguished by relatively larger eyes, and also often two-tone coloring, with darker colors over the dorsum (back), and white abdominal and limb hair-coloring.

The purpose of this project was to determine the effect of CWD abundance on the habitat use patterns of a common terrestrial rodent, the cotton mouse (Peromyscus gossypinus).

I tracked cotton mice with fluorescent pigments and radiotelemetry in 6 plots, situated in loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) stands, with manipulated levels of woody debris. A total of individuals of Florida mouse(Podomys floridanus), cotton rat(Sigmodon hispidus), cotton mice (Peromyscus gossypinus), and golden mouse (Ochrotomys nuttalli) were marked to monitor movements between the scrub and the wetlands, but only Florida mouse and cotton rat had sufficient data for analysis.

These included rice rat/hispid cotton rat Oryzomys palustris/Sigmodon hispidus (in five culverts), cotton mouse Peromyscus gossypinus (three culverts), round-tailed muskrat Neofiber alleni (three culverts) and southeastern short-tailed shrew Blarina carolinensis (two.

mouse, P. polionotus phasma, takes shelter among the dune grasses on Florida’s Atlantic coast. (C) Its mainland counterpart, the oldfield mouse, P. polionotus sumneri, is typically found in fallow fields and is sympatric with the cotton mouse, P.

gossypinus (D), which occupies adjacent stands of long leaf pine.

A comparative life history study of the mice of the genus Peromyscus.Nine strains were isolated from ear biopsies of the cotton mouse Peromyscus gossypinus (strains SCCH-6, SCCH, SCW, SCW, SCW, SCW, SCGT-6, SCGT and SCSC-1), six strains were isolated from ear biopsies of the eastern woodrat Neotoma floridana (strains SCCH, SCCH, SCJ-1, SCJ-5, SCJ-6 and SCGT) and one strain, SCW T.Peromyscus maniculatus has a round and slender body.

The head has a pointed nose with large, black, beady eyes. The ears are large and have little fur covering them. The vibrissae are long and prominent.

Peromyscus maniculatus has shorter forelimbs than hind limbs (Baker ). Peromyscus maniculatus is grayish to reddish brown with white.
