The Arctic lemming (Dicrostonyx torquatus) is a species of rodents in the family Cricetidae.. Although generally classified as a "least concern" species, the Novaya Zemlya subspecies (Dicrostonyx torquatus ungulatus) is considered a vulnerable species under Russian nature conservation legislation (included in Red Book of Russian Federation since ).   Abstract. Collared (Dicrostonyx groenlandicus) and brown (Lemmus trimucronatus) lemmings coexist in tundra habitats across much of the middle and lower Canadian coexistence, and response to predation risk, appears mediated by behavior. We analyzed field-collected videos of open-field tests to assess potential differences in innate behaviors between the two species.

The relationship between resources (forage availability and quality) and the foraging dynamics of muskoxen, Ovibos moschatus, was studied in Angujaartorfiup Nunaa, western Greenland, during spring (calving, post calving), summer, autumn (rut), and en did select among vegetation types in all seasons but calving.

The collared lemming is short and stocky with a very heavy coat year round. Pelage varies with the seasons: in summer the coat is light to dark grey with a buffy to reddish brown tone.

Dark lines down the back and on the sides of the head are characteristic, however, the length of the stripe varies from ending just before the withers, to.

The role of olfactory cues, social behavior, and duration of recall in the recognition of familiar conspecifics was investigated in collared lemmings (Dicrostonyx groenlandicus). Familiarity was established by housing a male and female together for 30 days. This study examined the effects of photoperiod (long photoperiod [LD, 20L:4D] and short photoperiod [SD, 8LD]), temperature (cold [C, 5° C] and warm [W, 18° C]), and diet quality (high-quality diet [HQ, 18% fiber] and low-quality diet [LQ, 49% fiber]) on growth, energy allocation, food intake, digestive efciency, and gut size in male collared lemmings (Dicrostonyx groenlandicus).

In coastal tundra, at least % of col- lared lemming Dicrostonyx groenlandicus individuals being monitored by radio telemetry were killed by arctic ground squirrels (Boonstra et al.

We examined patterns of inheritance of size, growth and behavioural traits of collared lemmings (Dicrostonyx groenlandicus).

Work was conducted on field-caught parents from the Canadian Arctic and their lab-born progeny. We partitioned inherited variance in traits into additive genetic and maternal effects components by using a half-sib breeding experiment in which each sire was mated to two dams.

Morphological differentiation and relationships among collared lemmings (Dicrostonyx Gloger, ) remain issue is particularly important in the Kivalliq Region, Nunavut, Canada, where Dicrostonyx groenlandicus (Traill, ) and Dicrostonyx richardsoni Merriam, ranges overlap.

Possible sympatry of both species obscures the taxonomic status of collared lemmings from this area. In Collared Peccary: Cactus Eater, kids go on a real-life adventure with wildlife biologist Lisa Bates as she tries to save a lost baby peccary.

Along the way, children will learn how peccaries have adapted to their harsh desert climate, including how they find food, stay safe, and keep track of other herd members. The northern collared lemming or Nearctic collared lemming (Dicrostonyx groenlandicus), sometimes called the Peary Land collared lemming in Canada, is a small North American one time, it was considered to be a subspecies of the Arctic lemming (Dicrostonyx torquatus).Some sources believe several other species of collared lemmings found in North America are actually.
