This project was begun in 1952 at which time the investigator became acquainted with the various major vegetation types in Jackson Hole and the surrounding mountains. The small mammal populations in a willow swamp and in a lodgepole-spruce-fir forest were studied. Several animals were obtained for use the following winter in laboratory experiments on metabolism. In 1953 two more areas were studied--nearly pure lodgepole pine forest and a sagebrush flat. Project Number 73.
