PhD title: Diet in the small rodent community
Description of research project
We will follow the small rodent community near Evenstad with focus on bank voles and tundra voles through different phases of their highly dynamic population cycles. The project is still in its infancy, but has interest in investigating synchronization in the community, behavioral traits, body condition as well as the main focus; describing the diet through the year and cycles in detail.
