Host Trap Data - mice and chipmunk

These data are part of a larger, long-term project to understand function in a complex forest network of linked and interacting taxa. The broad approach has been to quantify the strength of interactions between pairs of taxa and to embed those pairwise interactions in a more comprehensive interaction web, which itself might be affected by ongoing shifts in temperature and precipitation patterns. Specifically, this approach allows us to examine both top-down and bottom-up forces impacting small mammals, their tick parasites and associated pathogens. This particular dataset reflects numbers and estimated population abundances for white-footed mice and eastern chipmunks trapped and tagged at six Cary Institute grid plots during August and September across 31 years.
