(p.195) Chapter Thirteen Small Mammals
Ecology, Conservation, and Restoration of Tidal Marshes

Howard Shellhammer

University of California Press

This chapter is primarily about the small rodents and shrews of tidal salt marshes. Emphasis is given to the salt marsh harvest mouse (Reithrodontomys raviventris) and several endangered shrews (Sorex), but more common species such as meadow mice (Microtus) are also discussed. Attention is given to the effects of marsh destruction, fragmentation, and incompleteness on these small mammals, especially the great reduction and loss of the high marsh zone throughout the San Francisco Bay region.

Keywords:   small mammals, tidal salt marsh, salt marsh harvest mouse, Suisun shrew, salt marsh wandering shrew, high marsh zone
