In 1984 small mammals were trapped. Snap traps were baited with oatmeal/peanut butter and a trap placed at each stake (0. 10. 20. 30. 40. 50m). All transects in 1 field were trapped on the same night. One trapping session for 1 field consisted of 3 consecutive nights of trapping. Fields were trapped twice (2 sessions) in August and once in September. Small mammal traps Unit of abundance = IndCountInt, Unit of biomass = NA
