While other Peromyscus species, such as P. californicus, are used in various areas of research, these former two species will be the primary focus of this chapter which covers several topics including: biology, husbandry, captive breeding, research use, diseases, anesthesia, and analgesia.

Geographic Range. Peromyscus californicus is found from San Francisco Bay south and east along the coast ranges and in the eastern Sierra Nevada from Mariposa Co.

south to Kern Co. in California south to Bahia San Quintin on the Pacific coast of northwestern Baja California (Bryiski and Harris, ; Alvarez-Casteñada and Cortés-Calva, ).

Biology The Angel Island mouse is believed to be descended from an isolated population of cactus mice, [4] possibly belonging to the P. fraterculus species or subspecies [5] The critically endangered San Lorenzo mouse, which inhabits a smaller group of islands to the south, may be descended from the same stock, isolated when the islands Class: Mammalia.

Publisher Summary Peromyscus are myomorph rodents belonging to the family of Cricetidae and to the subfamily Neotominae. Neotominae comprises 16 genera of New World cricetid rodents including deer mice, woodrats, and their relatives.

The white-footed mouse is the most commonly used in research. Fossil species that are indisputably assigned to Peromyscus date from the early Pliocene (lower Blancan) of North America (e.g., Korth, ), but certain forms described from the late Miocene (Clarendonian-Hemphillian) have been assigned to Copemys or to Peromyscus (e.g., compare Shotwell, a, and Hibbard,versus Lindsay,and.

Individuals weigh between 22 and 36 g, and are from to mm in length. The fur is a pale ochre with black dorsally. The flanks are reddish, and the under parts are light buff.

A black ring around the eye is present. The feet are white. Priorities for Peromyscus research. Discovering as yet untapped ecological diversity. Much of our understanding of Peromyscus biology comes from studies of two ubiquitous species that have proven amenable to laboratory life—P.
