Abstract

We investigated the effects of corridor gaps and corridor width on the survival and movement of resident and non-resident deermice Peromyscus maniculatus . Transplanted non-resident deermice were used to simulate dispersing individuals, and resident deermice served as controls. The study design was a completely randomized 2 2 factorial with width (narrow or wide) and continuity (with or without a 10-m-wide corridor gap) as factors of interest. Vegetation variables were more significant with movement and number of crossings than were width and continuity. Survival was unaffected by corridor width and continuity, as well as vegetation variables.
