Influence of plant community composition on small rodents in a prairie restoration site
MetadataShow full item record
I investigated the influence of plant community composition on small rodents in a prairie restoration site near Brackett, Wisconsin. The project was embedded within the Weiher/Lee prairie restoration experiment, in which 0.1 ha plots were manipulated in terms of fungal mutualists and nitrogen availability. My objective was to determine how plant functional diversity and species richness influenced patch occupancy, measured as likelihood of finding a given rodent species in a plot.
