Spacing behaviour and social and genetic mating system in corn mouse
This book comprises a long-running research about the spacing behaviour and social and genetic mating system of the corn mouse Calomys musculinus. This book aims to make known several aspects of the behavioral ecology of this species that inhabits Pampean agrarian ecosystems of central and north western of central Argentina. The species is a good settler of disturbed habitats and shows a wider habitat and trophic niche than other coexisting rodent species. Besides this species is very important in relation to its role as reservoir of the Junín virus, the etiological agent of the Argentine Hemorrhagic Fever.
Doctor of Biological Sciences, obtained my post degree title at the National University of Río Cuarto, Argentina. I have a wide experience in wild rodents' behaviour, especially on mating and space use strategies. In these topics I had publish several articles, book chapters and books.
