Abstract
We examined the reproductive status of Baird's pocket gophers (Geomys breviceps) in Union Parish, Louisiana, for 18 months in 2010 and 2011. We found that pocket gophers were potentially reproductively active throughout the year, although the number of reproductively active gophers peaked during late spring through autumn. Our results are similar to those of studies of Baird's pocket gopher in other states and of other pocket gophers in the genus Geomys.
