Factors affecting annual plant assemblages on banner-tailed kangaroo rat mounds. Mun, H. & Whitford, W. G. Journal of Arid Environments, 1990.
abstract   bibtex   
We studied patterns of annual plants assemblages and soil properties of banner-tailed kangaroo rat (Dipodomys spectabilis) mounds. The spring annual flora on mounds was dominated by Descuraina pinnata and Eschscholtzia mexicana; intermound areas were dominated by Eriastrum diffusum..... Differences in species composition and biomass production of annual plants between kangaroo rat mounds and intermound areas are attributed to the differences in both soil physical properties and nitrogen availability.
