Population Fluctuations in Rodents

University of Chicago Press

This chapter provides a comparative population dynamics of rodents and other mammals. Its main objective is to identify the factors that affect population growth rates, and it begins by discussing the evolution of intrinsic processes which regulate population. The chapter then examines the population control of large herbivorous mammals, in which human hunting or poaching is the main cause of population change. A multiple-factor explanation for population changes in small herbivorous mammals is also discussed.

Keywords:   comparative population dynamics, rodents, mammals, population growth rates, population control, herbivorous mammals, population change
