Peromyscus, small mammals, Iowa, strip mining
Small mammal presence, diversity and reproduction were compared from summer 1975 to summer 1976 on abandoned coal strip mine spoils and unmined land in southern Iowa. More species were trapped on the unmined area, while the relative dominance of Peromyscus spp. on mined land was greater. Peromyscus populations on mined land exhibited a shorter breeding season than on unmined land. Other population parameters did not show clear differences between the areas.
