Agricultural land use alters trophic status and population density of deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus) on the North American Great Plains
Abstract:Habitat conversion is among the most important causes of environmental change worldwide, yet relatively little is known about its potential influence on trophic interactions. We investigated the effects of agricultural land use on carbon and nitrogen stable isotope values, trophic status, population density, and body condition of deer mice (
