This volume examines the everyday lives of grey and fox squirrels, the two most dominant types of tree squirrels of the eastern United States. Drawing on more than 20 years of research, the authors detail the behaviour, reproduction, diet, physiology and habitat use of these rodents, as well as their complex interdependent relationships with seed-producing trees. The authors compare and contrast tree squirrels with other members of this rodent family, including ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots and prairie dogs. In addition to scientific findings, the authors describe their fieldwork, from the pitfalls of patrolling forests at night in order to check nest boxes to the challenges of fitting squirrels with radio-tracking collars.
