Abstract

We examined burrow systems of prairie voles (Microtus ochrogaster) in fields of fescue (Festuca elatior) in central Kentucky. Burrow systems were associated with patches of lush vegetation and consisted of numerous surface entrances, extensively branched and interconnected tunnels and dead end passages, and nest chambers, feeding chambers, and chambers that were plowing artifacts. Most vole burrowing was within 20 cm of the surface.
