Special Publication #01
N. D. Moncrief, J. W. Edwards, and P. A. Tappe, Editors
In the 1980s, research on the biology and management of southeastern fox squirrels increased substantially. This increased research activity prompted John W. Edwards and Philip A. Tappe to organize the Southeastern Fox Squirrel Study Group, which met at Clemson University in August 1990 and 1992. Nancy D. Moncrief, VMNH Curator of Mammals, collaborated with them in 1992 to edit this volume and compile the abstracts.
VMNH Special Publication Number 1 is a collection of peer-reviewed manuscripts that provides a comprehensive overview of southeastern fox squirrel biology. The subject areas are diverse, ranging from nomenclature to aging techniques, and reflect the diverse interests of the study group.
