76 EXPERIMENT STATION RECORD [Vol 92
big-game and small-game crops during wartime, pond and small lake management,
education, economic utilization of rough fish, fur resources, mistakes made in wildlife
management, and recent developments in wildlife technics. The following are
from State experiment station or land-grant college sources: Summary and Recommendations
From the Technical Sessions, by T. I. Storer (pp. 79-86) (Uhiv.
Calif.); Effect of Management Practices on the Catch in a 12-Acre Pond During a
10-Year Period, by H. S. Swingle and E. V. Smith (pp. 141-151), and Results of
Further Experiments on the Stocking of Fish Ponds, by E. V. Smith and H. S.
Swingle (pp. 168-173) (both Ala. Expt. Sta.); Wildlife-An Essential Resource,
by P. F. English (pp. 187-190) (Pa. State Col.); Class Field Trips in Wildlife
Management, by L. Wing (pp. 195-197) (Wash. State Col.); A Wildlife Conservation
Teaching Program, by W. B. Davis (pp. 198-205) (Tex. A. and M. Col.); and
Teaching Outdoor Wildlife Techniques, by G. H. Kelker (pp. 206-209) (Utah Sta.).
Highway mortality of wildlife in southern Michigan, A. O. HAUGEN (Jour.
Mammal., 25 (1944), No. 2, pp. 177-184).-The greatest highway mortality of cottontails,
fox squirrels, muskrats, opossums, skunks, and raccoons was found associated
with the increased activity during the breeding season and periods of dispersal.
The definite early spring increase for cottontails results largely from an increase in
the kill of males. The ultimate effect of highway mortality of small game in this
area-especially cottontails-is believed insignificant in consideration of the total
population susceptible to hazards of highway traffic.
A deer browse survey method, S. E. ALDOUS (Jour. Mammal., 25 (1944), No.
2, pp. 130-136).-This report describes a simplified technic for making browse
Notes on mountain goats in the Black Hills, W. H. HARMON. (U. S. D. A.).
(Jour. Mammal., 25 (1944), No. 2, pp. 149-151).-Field notes on Oreamos americanus
Helminth parasites of the gray fox, H. K. BUECHNER (Jour. Mammal., 25
(1944), No. 2, pp. 185-188).-Examination of 80 preserved viscera and 52 additional
stomachs of the gray fox revealed 10 kinds of helminth parasites, 5 of
which-Taenia pisiformis, Ancylostoma canium, A. braziliense, Physaloptera rara,
and Pachysentis canicola-appear to be pathologically important. No parasites were
found in any of the internal organs other than the stomach, intestines, and trachea.
The occurrence of P. canicola (Acanthocephala) in North America is here reported
for the first time.
Algunos roedores de importancia agricola-generalidades [Some rodents of
agricultural importance], A. PENICHE CANTO (Fit6filo, 2 (1943), No. 4, pp. 5981).
Some rodent populations in the Sierra Nevada of California, T. I. STORER,
F. C. EVANS, and F. G. PALMER. (Univ. Calif.). (Ecol. Monog., 14 (1944), No.
2, pp. 165-192, illus. 18).-Despite the important relations of rodents to agriculture,
public health, wildlife conservation, recreation, and other fields of man's interests,
it is stated that surprisingly little direct research on the native species has been
carried out. This study has to do with the rodents of the Lake Tahoe and Bass
Lake areas, including such matters as their ecology, population changes, and control.
Detailed accounts are presented of 13 species.
A new race of the canyon mouse, 0. B. GOIN. (Univ. Fla.). (Jour. Mammal.,
25 (1944), No. 2, pp. 189-191, illus. 1).-Peromyscus crinitus doutti n. subsp. is described.
Growth and reproduction of the cotton rat (Sigmodon hispidus hispidus)
under laboratory conditions, B. J. and R. K. MEYER. (Univ. Wis.). (Jour.
Mammad., 25 (1944), No. 2, pp. 107-129, illus. 12).-A review of the literature
