One year of trapping along a powerline right-of-way (ROW') in E Tennessee showed that diversity (H') of small mammals was highest in edge and ROW communities. Diversity was almost identical for ROW communities bordered by either pine or hardwood forest, suggesting that the composition of the adjacent forest has little or no effect on the diversity of small mammals inhabiting the ROW. Diversity in hardwood forest and edge was lower than in pine forest and edge.
