Population dynamics of small mammals in relation to forest age and structural habitat factors in northern Sweden
In northern Scandinavia there are indications of a long‐term decline in the abundance of the three dominant vole species, Clethrionomys glareolus , Clethrionomys rufocanus and Microtus agrestis , since the 1970s. One explanation proposes that intensified clear‐cutting has created even‐aged and homogeneous forest stands with poor overall conditions for survival and reproduction of the voles.
