Effects of Storms on Rice Rats Inhabiting Coastal Marshes
During 1979, three storms with winds in excess of 73 km/hr and tides up to 1.5 m above normal struck a section of the Mississippi coast where a population study of the rice rat, Oryzomys palustris, was in progress. There were no noticeable effects on population levels, and many individual animals survived the storms.
