This investigation examined the social structure of four species of small mammals (Perognathus parvus (Peale), Reithrodontomys megalotis (Baird), Peromyscus maniculatus (Wagner), and Dipodomys ordi (Woodhouse) at the National Reactor Testing Station (NRTS) in Idaho. An understanding of the social structure provides ecological clues concerning the integration of interactions, reproduction, distributions, densities, and diel activities for not only one animal and species, but for a complex of animals interacting with each other.
