SAGEBRUSH VOLE Lemmiscus curtatus Description Early biological survey accounts and research referred to the sagebrush vole as pygmy vole, pallid vole, sagebrush meadow mouse, pygmy field mouse, or variations on these names (Cary ; Hall ; Miller ).

The sagebrush vole is a small, short-tailed rodent with a dense, soft, relativelyFile Size: KB. The sagebrush vole (Lemmiscus curtatus) is a tiny vole found in western North America. This is the only member of genus Lemmiscus. They are somewhat similar in appearance to lemmings.

They have chunky bodies with short legs and a very short tail which is covered in fur and lighter below. They have fluffy dull grey fur with lighter : Mammalia. Sagebrush Vole Distribution, Abundance, and Seasonality.

In California, occurs in the Great Basin regions of northern Inyo Co., Mono Co., and the eastern parts of Sierra, Plumas, Lassen, and Modoc cos. Populations fluctuate, but generally are highest in sagebrush, bitterbrush, and low sage habitats.

A medium-sized vole under an ounce in weight, the Sagebrush Vole measures between 4 1/4 and 5 5/8 inches, including its furry, dusky- and white-colored tail.

It has thick, pale gray fur, darker above, whitish, silvery, or buffy below. Some individuals may have touches of buff color on their ears or noses (Zeveloff and Collett ).

The average life of the smaller vole species is three to six months. These voles rarely live longer than 12 months. Larger species, such as the European water vole, live longer and usually die during their second, or rarely their third, many as 88% of voles are estimated to die within the first month of : Mammalia.

Key Areas and Conditions for Sagebrush Vole in North Dakota. Sagebrush Voles are found in southwestern North Dakota. Sagebrush habitat in that portion of the state would be a key area identified for this species. Problems Which May Affect this Species.

Habitat. The health of North Dakota sagebrush habitat is the greatest concern for this species.

About the only large herbivore that really does well on a sagebrush diet is the American pronghorn, which evolved along with the swarm of sagebrush species in the western half of North America and was able to evolve tolerance for the sagebrush's chemical warfare arsenal.

Once abundant in California's Central Valley, the pronghorn was extirpated. Animals, like the pronghorn and the sage-grouse, depend on sagebrush for food, shelter, and even water that is stored in the plant. To humans, the Sagebrush Steppe Ecosystem can look empty, without any life at all, but when you take a closer look at these large open areas covered with sagebrush, grasses, and other plants you can see that there areFile Size: 1MB.

Colorado cave yields million-year-old record of evolution and climate change By Robert Sanders, Media Relations | 21 October BERKELEY – For at least a million years, owls throughout the West have been snapping up sagebrush voles and reducing them to gray pellets of fur, bones and teeth littering the foot of the roost.

They, and the changing boundaries (both expanding and shrinking) of some of the more widespread species, may be useful in monitoring ecological change.

There are even spiders found only in sagebrush. And then there’s the sage grouse. Nearly every phase of the grouse’s life relies on sagebrush. They eat it, they nest in it, hide in it, seek cover during the winter under big sagebrush’s.

GREATER SAGE-GROUSE DIET. Life history and diet of GRSG are closely tied to the phenological development of sagebrush habitats. Brood rearing and chick productivity are highly dependent on sagebrush communities that contain a diversity and abundance of forbs and insects necessary for early GRSG development.
