Description:

Authors report on body mass dynamics, field growth rates and age-specific growth curves for the leaf-eared mouse Phyllotis darwini (Waterhouse, 1837). Mark-recapture methods provided data for a population of P. darwini in a semi-arid region of Chile from 1987 to 1996. There were significant effects of sex, season, and slope exposure on body mass. In addition, authors found significant effects of sex, mass class, and season on field growth rates.
