      Ground-dwelling squirrels are busy creatures. During the four to five months of spring and summer, they are feverishly raising a family of four to 14 kits, while at the same time trying to put on Sixteen percent of California ground squirrels (Spermophilus beecheyi) were found to be shedding an average of 53, Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts/g of feces. Male squirrels had a higher prevalence and higher intensity of shedding than did female squirrels. The majority of C. parvum isolates matched a bovine-murine genotype, with a few isolates resembling a porcine ://

      I use ground-dwelling squirrels (ground squirrels and marmots) as a model system for exploring ecological, behavioral, physiological, and evolutionary mechanisms that determine population growth. They are a taxonomically diverse group of rodents with different mating systems, social structure, and population dynamics distributed throughout the ~karels. The striking patterns in seasonal activity and mass change exhibited by hibernating species of ground squirrels (Spermophilus) are thought to be shaped by climatic conditions and seasonal peaks of environmental productivity.I examined the annual cycle of Mexican ground squirrels (Spermophilus mexicanus) in southeastern New Mexico to test the prediction that because of the moderate winters

      We tested whether prevention of hibernation in ground squirrels by midwinter exposure to high ambient temperatures influenced timing of the spring phase of We used a data set of $>$ ultraconserved element (UCE) loci from a classic mammalian radiation, ground-dwelling squirrels of the tribe Marmotini (Sciuridae: Xerinae), to assess sensitivity of phylogenetic estimates to varying per-locus information content across four different inference methods (RAxML, ASTRAL, NJst, and SVDquartets).
