Such cycles in the population density of some mammals are clearly defined, just like happens for Lepus
americanus, whose interval of duration is of eight to ten years, period during which there are population peaks and declines related basically with the supply of food, predation and the leveret survival.
Trophic interactions between two medium-sized mammals: The case of the native Dolichotispatagonum and the exotic Lepus
europaeus in a hyper-arid ecosystem.
The locality of this new record is at the southeastern border of the range of Lepus
californicus festinus and is geographically separated from that of L.
Canis, Felis, Rattus, Equus, Macaca, Lepus
, Ovis, and Vulpes).
Remains of Dipodomys were present in 40%, Thomomys in 20%, and Lepus
in 10% of all coyotes examined.
, THE HARE, isn't a constellation much explored by binocular stargazers.
Mammals known from the study area include Dipodomys ordii (Ord's kangaroo rat), Onychomys leucogaster (northern grasshopper mouse), Perognathus flavescens (plains pocket mouse), Peromyscus maniculatus (deer mouse), Reithrodontomys montanus (plains harvest mouse), Sigmodon hispidus (hispid cotton rat), Neotoma micropus (wood rat), Spermophilus spilosoma (spotted ground squirrel), Canis latrans (coyote), Taxidea taxus (badger), Lepus
californicus (black-tailed jackrabbit), Sylvilagus audubonii (desert cottontail), Antilocapra americana (pronghorn), and Bos bos (cattle).
LATE ON DARK December evenings, and earlier after dinnertime in January, bright Orion marches up the southeastern sky with dim Lepus
, the Hare, crouching under his feet.
Records of jackrabbits (Lepus
) also are widespread in time and space; all paleontological and archaeological records lie within the current range of Lepus
In Egypt, however, Lepus
was seen as a chair for Orion.
The cluster is relatively easy to identify since it's the only globular in the region; its nearest neighbor, M79, lies nearly 16[degrees] to the northwest in Lepus
In October, 1845, I remarked on a most fiery or scarlet star on the confines of Lepus
and Orion," wrote English astronomer John Russell Hind.
