Date issued/created:

Description:

Comparison was made of the absolute and relative weights of internal organs and body of the field mouse Apodemus agrarius (Pallas, 1771), living in areas differing as to their degree of urbanization: a park in the city centre, a suburban wooded park and woodland outside the suburbs. When data from the two study years (1975 and 1976) were compared similar tendencies in variations of the indices examined were found within the ranges of individual variation, sex dimorphism and also variation in indices depending on changes in body weight.
