Description:

Authors examined the influence of density-dependent and density-independent factors on reproductive processes of leaf-eared mouse Phyllotis darwini (Waterhouse, 1837) in a semiarid region of Chile subjected to El Niño-driven precipitation. This species undergoes periodic irruptions apparently triggered by unusually high precipitation. The effects of density and precipitation were analyzed statistically regarding the following reproductive parameters: fraction of reproductive females, reproductive numbers (juveniles + reproductive females), per capita reproductive rates, and reproduction index based on long-term data (10 years).
