The remanents of hurricane Dolly hit the site last month while the trapping was occurring, so our numbers were probably low because the weather was bad. However, we still caught 1 of the 4 tagged Dipodomys spectabilis that are currently residing on the site. We go back down very soon, so we should have a better feel for what the rodents are actually up to.

If you’re interested in what we’ve been up to lately, we’ll be presenting a research poster at next week’s Ecological Society of America meeting. The title is:
Effects of species identity and functional group richness on community structure and function: Are species functionally redundant?
by Katherine M. Thibault and S.K. Morgan Ernest.
It’s our latest work on the the invasion of Bailey’s pocket mouse (see photo below; isn’t he cute?) on ecosystem structure and function. So stop by Weds night and we’ll tell you all about what this little guy has been up to!
