Previous studies have shown that pocket gophers
either cannot swim (Hamilton 1943; Jackson 1961) or are relatively weak swimmers (test animals swam to exhaustion in less than three minutes; Kennerly 1963), and it is our contention that all pocket gopher
populations in the immediate vicinity of the present-day hybrid zone likely were extirpated during the flood of 1929.
However, none of this must detract from the Herculean task that Avi Gopher
has undertaken, and completed, with this study of Levantine Neolithic arrowheads.
Resource employs approximately 600 people at recycling facilities in Eagan, MN and Tampa, FL.
However, our objective was to examine factors related to pocket gopher
presence in an open pine-dominated landscape.
Comparative analysis of burrow systems of seven species of pocket gophers
We checked voles and pocket gophers
every 3-4 h to make sure they still looked healthy and had sufficient food.
Most states prohibit keeping a gopher
tortoise as a pet.
It doesn't take dynamite to dispatch gophers
--as Bill Murray memorably tried in the movie "Caddyshack"--but ridding a vineyard of pocket gophers
can be challenging.
At these elevations, Mountain Pocket Gophers
are far more common than Botta's Pocket Gopher
(Ingles 1952; Jones and Baxter 2004), but gopher
mounds and tunnels could not be distinguished to species level.
Subpopulation definition: First, we estimated gopher
maximum dispersal distance as the square root of home range size multiplied by 40 (Bowman et al.
I did this once three months ago and I haven't see a gopher
Anton Mickelson, one of the primary purveyors of gopher
poison at the time, became well-known in municipal circles, and a regular attendee at annual conventions, where he offered wholesale prices to municipalities.
