Effects of masting on rodent space use accepted in Ecology and Evolution!

In the work we have used the spatially-explicit capture-recapture models (developed by Murray Efford) to study how mast seeding and density affects the home range size of the yellow-necked mouse. Mast seeding is well-known to increase rodent density. Thus, any effects of masting on animal space use were invoked to be the consequence of dramatic…
