1. Linear multiple regression analyses revealed that the abundance of house mice in and around irrigated summer crops in the Macquarie Valley, NSW was associated with mild temperatures, adequate rainfall and an abundant ground cover and seed bank. 2. Using short-term data, these analyses aided the identification of which habitat characteristics were particularly important to mice. 3. While not replacing the need for long-term data collection, this approach can utilize short-term data to assist in the development of management or control strategies for vertebrate populations.
