Australian Wildlife Research
8(3) 475 - 497
AbstractThe diet and habitat selection of Pseudomys apodemoides were studied at 2 mature heathland localities in western Victoria. This species ate seeds during summer, and seeds, cockroaches and Banksia flowers during winter. Habitat preference was for diverse heathland communities within patches of Banksia ornata. P. apodemoides showed spatial separation from Notomys mitchellii, which ate similar foods during its short period of residency within the study area.
