... can be established. I modelled mouse population density and the feeding requirements of mice in a crop simulation model, and estimated yield loss. A sigmoidal curve best described the data and showed that the density of mice at which 5% loss occurred was 42 mice/ha. Management therefore is required...

The results demonstrate that T. mitchellae has a generalist feeding strategy that varies with substrate. Fungal material contributed a high proportion of the diet, suggesting that coarse woody debris...
