A critical analysis of subspecific variations in Dipodomys nitratoides

This study is necessary because it represents perhaps the last opportunity to examine Grinnell’s findings. Specimens were trapped and their localities mapped (see map, Fig. 1): then statistical methods were applied to various measurements such as tail length, hind foot length, red pelage color, bullae width, and skull length, in order to understand the systematic relationship among these subspecies.
