Title: Fact Sheet: Restoration Effects on Small Mammals and their Predators
Author: * Kalies, E.L.
Subject: Mammals, Thinning
Abstract: Small mammals perform several important ecosystem functions, including increasing soil aeration, dispersing seeds and mycorrhizal fungi, regulating vegetation abundance and composition, and serving as prey for predators. While wildlife ecologists know that small mammal densities often fluctuate in response to disturbances in their environ- ment, there is little understanding about disturbance impacts to the functional roles of these animals.
