Abstract: LTER/VCR010:
Live-trapping transects were established along four of the five
permanent transects (1, 2, 4, and 5) on Hog Island. Traps are located
every 12.5 m along the transect and alternately offset from the center
of the transect (to minimize the effects of the path) by 4 m. This
yields an inter-trap distance of 15 m. One Sherman live trap is placed
at each station and baited with peanut butter. Species trapped are Mus
musculus (house mouse), Oryzomys palustris (rice rat), and Rattus
norvegicus (Norway rat).
