Abstract

Free-ranging female white-footed mice were inoculated with a series of exotic (not encountered in the environment) antigens to evaluate the utility of maternally transferred antibodies in identifying offspring under field conditions. Offspring dispersed an average of 64 m from their mothers' centers of activity. The exotic antigen technique appears to be a feasible method for studying the population biology of secretive small mammals. -from Authors
