Biogeography of Rodent Population Fluctuations

Biogeography of Rodent Population Fluctuations

(p.23) Chapter Two Biogeography of Rodent Population Fluctuations
Population Fluctuations in Rodents

Charles J. Krebs

University of Chicago Press

This chapter discusses the amplitude of population change in a variety of small rodent species, focusing on the latitudinal variations in population variability and population density. The coefficient of variation is used to measure population variability. The chapter begins by identifying the data needed to calculate the coefficient of variation. It then addresses whether population fluctuations are stronger at high latitudes and whether small rodent maximum densities are higher in more productive habitats or lower in predator-rich habitats.

Keywords:   population change, population variability, population density, coefficient of variation
