Scientists used three trapping methods: nest boxes, Fitch live traps, and pitfall traps, to capture and survey small mammals in a range of habitats in the Great Dismal Swamp.
This study is the first attempt to inventory and evaluate the mammals associated with pocosins and Carolina bays. During a four-year period, forty species of mammals were trapped or observed in twelve North Carolina habitat types. Fires, storms, and certain man-related disturbances seemed to be influences on mammal density and diversity in pocosin communities.
