Small mammals are a potent force tending to control insects in the forest. As they are nonmigratory and are active throughout the year, they are potentially more effective than birds. Although the populations vary over wide limits, numbers are controlled by ecological factors and may be increased only by environmental improvement. Certain forest practices may be detrimental to small mammals in the forest.
