Mammals, Iowa

Abstract

Of the 70 species of mammals reported from Iowa since European settlement, 39 (55%) are extirpated, rare, or declining. Twenty-nine (42%) are not appreciably declining and 2 (3%) are increasing in number and distribution. Continued pressure to clear and row-crop as much land as possible is placing an increasing stress on the mammals of Iowa.
