Movement of ectomycorrhizal fungal propagules by small mammals into burned areas of the Huck fire, John D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway, was monitored for a third field season by live-trapping small mammals in burned and unburned forest sites and examining spores contained in their fecal pellets. As in the first two years, three species of small mammals were commonly trapped including the white-footed deermouse (Peromyscus maniculatus), least chipmunk (Tamias minimus) and southern red-backed vole (Clethrionomys gapperi).
