The effects of grazing on Dipodomys nitratoides exilis in an alkali sink community.
The natural history of the Fresno kangaroo rat, Dipodomys nitratoides exilis, in the San Joaquin Valley's alkali sink habitat was first described by Culbertson (1946). His study included little information on the interspecific interactions with other rodent species or the intraspecific interactions of the Fresno kangaroo rat. Little attention has been given to its ecology since. Instead the emphasis has been placed on the controversy of whether there do or do not exist three distinct subspecies of Dipodomys nitratoides.
