Observations on Reproduction, Growth, and Behavior of the Northern Pocket Gopher (Thomomys talpoides)
Journal of Mammalogy
As part of a study examining the role of northern pocket gophers (Thomomys talpoides) in an Engelmann spruce (Picea engelmanni)-subalpine fir (Abies lasiocarpa) ecosystem, I have gathered information on their behavior, reproduction, growth, and development. This report presents those findings in the context of the evolutionary strategy of a fossorial way of life.
