DescriptionSmall mammal populations were compared between a grazed habitat and a comparable adjoining habitat protected from grazing by an exclosure. Composition, naive densiiy, standing crop biomass, species diversity, and other attributes of the small mammal communities were assessed. More species and higher numbers of most small mammals were found in the ungrazed habitat.
