Abstract

To assess response of Mount Graham red squirrels (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus grahamensis) to postfire conditions, we monitored size of home ranges and core areas and characteristics of vegetation at middens in an area of low-intensity burn. For a larger-scale assessment, we monitored mountain-wide occupancy of middens. Although red squirrels selected unburned locations as sites for middens, mean size of home range in a lightly burned area decreased over time, suggesting high availability of resources in lightly burned areas.
