    Description

    Three trapping techniques for small mammals were used in 47 study stands in northern California and southern Oregon and resulted in different capture frequencies by the different techniques. In addition, the abundances of mammals derived from the different techniques produced vegetation association models which were often quite different. Only the California redbacked vole (Clethrionomys californicus) showed any association with stand age, and no species had any marked associations with the moisture regime of the stands or the geographical regions.
