Abstract

The Allegheny woodrat (Neotoma magister) is, perforce, limited to rocky habitats (Castleberry et al. 2006) located in forest interiors. This association with surface rock islands in large tracts of contiguous forest means suitable habitat always has been rare and is becoming more so. Today, N. magister is endangered or threatened in six of the 12 states that encompass its range (Wright Chapter 1). Numerous authors, most recently Ford et al. (2006) and LoGiudice (2006, Chapter 2), suggest multiple stressors have contributed to a protracted population decline and local extinctions of N. magister populations. We consider these stressors as the result of two basic threats.
