Population Fluctuations in Rodents

Charles J. Krebs

This chapter reviews the basic principles of predation, addresses whether predation is both necessary and sufficient to determine population growth rates in small rodents, and analyzes some empirical studies of predation in small rodents. These include a study on predator impact on the high brown lemming population in Barrow, Alaska; experimental predator reduction experiments in western Finland; and a weasel removal experiment in Scotland.

Keywords:   predation, population growth rates, rodents, lemming, Alaska, predator reduction, weasel removal
