Hall, LK. 2012. Effect of cheatgrass on abundance of the North American deermouse (Peromyscus maniculatus). Southwestern Naturalist 57: 166-169.
|This study addressed the effects that cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum) had on populations of the North American deermouse (Peromyscus maniculatus) at Antelope Island State Park, Davis County, Utah. Linear regression revealed a significant negative relationship between cover of cheatgrass and relative abundance of North American deermice. These results concur with conclusions of others suggesting that cheatgrass negatively impacts abundance of rodents.|
