New Holland mouse Pseudomys novaehollandiae (Rodentia: Muridae): further findings at Yanakie Isthmus, Wilsons Promontory National Park



New Holland mouse Pseudomys novaehollandiae (Rodentia: Muridae): further findings at Yanakie Isthmus, Wilsons Promontory National Park



Victorian Naturalist (Blackburn). October; 1165: 169-172



Trapping for the New Holland Mouse Pseudomys novaehollandiae was carried out on the Yanakie Isthmus area of Wilsons Promontory National Park, southern Victoria, in May 1996 as part of a program aimed at determining appropriate habitat management for this species. During previous surveys in the vicinity, the New Holland Mouse had been captured only on vegetated dunes. However, on this occasion a number were trapped in open swales. This finding may increase our understanding of the habitat requirements of the New Holland Mouse. The shrub layer in the swales, dominated by Coast Tea-tree Leptospermum laevigatum, had been slashed within the previous three years; it is possible that the regrowth had reached a stage of succession where it was providing sufficient cover for New Holland Mice, perhaps coupled with an increased abundance of food. This paper describes the results of the trapping program and provides recommendations for future management of the New Holland Mouse and its habitat at Yanakie Isthmus, Wilsons Promontory National Park.
