DOI: 10.1134/S1067413611050043 Rodents, voles in particular, are typical rstrategists a fairly large forest area (5 ha) totally damaged by (MacArthur and Wilson, 1967; Stearns, 1992). There windfall, where regular censuses of rodents on perma fore, the length of the breeding period is of special sig nent trapline transects were taken every year to deter nificance for them, since high mortality at other mine their relative abundance. The only exception was phases of the population cycle, especially in the winter in the autumn of 2005, when both species were equally season, is not counterbalanced by population recruit abundant in the windfall area.
