Initial study of microhabitats of mammals found in Carp Creek Gorge.
AbstractThe gorge offers many types of microhabitats which are used by numerous species of animals. Each species has different requirements with respect to microhabitat because of its winter habits. I only studied a few examples of the microhabitats available in the gorge but I began to get an understanding of how they help the animals to remain active during the winter. Each animal has different requirements to fill in order to remain active and therefore requires a different microclimate. I only made a dent in this surface of this aspect of winter ecology but it gave me a better understanding of the winter microhabitats of a few of the mammals in this region.
