Uinta ground swuirrels (Spermophilus armatus) occupy a variety of habitats in Jackson Hole. This study has been investigating squirrel populations in two conspicuously different habitat types in order to evaluate the means by which these populations adapt to different combinations of enviromental factors (in this case differences in soil texture, the abundance of edible vegetation, and the nature of the overstory). Project Number 157.
