dc.description.abstract "Fifteen individuals of the yellow-footed marsupial mouse, Antechinus flavipes flavipes, were trapped in the coastal Eucalyptus forest of New South Wales, Australia. In the 22 acres sampled all but four specimens were captured within 150 feet of a permanent creek bordered by loamy soil and dense leaf litter. Recapture data were obtained from four specimens, and the greatest distance between points of recapture was 350 feet. Trap size was found to be a significant factor in the capture of this species. Seasonal changes in the pouch area and early stages of pouch young are described. The data suggest that birth of the pouch young occurs in August and possibly September. Food selection and behavior in captivity are described. The males of A. f. flavipes and A. f. godmani are shown to be significantly larger than the females of these respective subspecies"--P. 22-23. en_US
