Sampling, Processing and Quality Control Methods

Step by Step Procedures
Step 1:  
Description:

Animal trapping

101 Neotoma fuscipes dens were mapped within an 8.3 ha area. 49 of the dens were randomly selected and were used as sites for live trapping. Traps were baited with food and set out 2 nights per month. Each animal was ear-tagged and the gender, weight, age class and resproductive status of each animal was recorded. Additional data were collected on the location and conditions of the den sites and surrounding habitat.
