Small mammal bait preferences and population status of were studied in Great Smoky Mountains National Park during the summer of 2010. The three main objectives were to explore the effects that weather and habitat have on small mammal bait preferences; explore the longer-term effects of drought on species numbers and diversity; and document the presence of M. nivalis in the Park.
In order to protect the Great Smokey Mountains, scientists take to the conservancy each year to study the species there. This effort began in 1997 when the All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory was launched. The focus of this program is to locate, study, describe, and catalog every living thing in the park.
