Uinta ground squirrels occupy a variety of habitats in Jackson Hole. This study has been investigating squirrel populations in two conspicuously different habitats in order to evaluate the manner in which these populations respond to different combinations of enviromental factors in a natural situation. In this case the habitats differ significally with regard to soil texture, the abundaance of edible vegetation, the nature of the overstory, and the amount of available space. Project Number 157.
