Chapter Six (p.98) Spatial Dynamics of Populations
Population Fluctuations in Rodents

Charles J. Krebs

University of Chicago Press

Fluctuations in small rodent populations tend to occur at the same time over large geographical areas. This chapter discusses the patterns of synchrony among rodent populations, and identifies three mechanisms as sources of synchrony among populations: dispersal, predation, and weather effects. It also discusses the methods used for analyzing synchrony in more detail.

Keywords:   rodent populations, synchrony, dispersal, predation, weather
