Voles and bog lemmings of Wisconsin


, : Voles and bog lemmings of Wisconsin. Transactions of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences Arts and Letters, 78: 87-110

The numbers of specimens and mapping of them reveal that of the five species and nine races of arvicoline mice now recognized in Wisconsin only Microtus pennsylvanicus is abundant and widely distributed. It may be considered a pest. Clethrionomys is next in abundance, harmless, confined to northern forests. The other species are uncommon or rare, with limited and local distributions. In tolerable numbers they are beneficial and intersting members of Wisconsin ecosystems. The pine (woodland) vole is listed by the Wisconsin Bureau of Endangered Resources are rare enough for "special concern" (Watch List). Pitymys ochrogaster minor, P. pinetorum, Synaptomys cooperi jesseni, and S. c. gossii seem to be among the rarest of Wisconsin animals. In this study the pine vole and prairie vole were both assigned to the genus Pitymys. Of the nine recognized races, three were not known to Jackson (1961). Two of his Wisconsin names are placed in synonymy.
