Title
Long-term scatterhoarding by Eurasian red squirrels (**Sciurus vulgaris**)
Author
Abstract
Hoarding behaviour, seed species hoarded and hoarding intensity by red squirrels (Sciurus vulgaris L.) are described for two populations; one in a coniferous woodland with few deciduous trees, the other in a mixed deciduous woodland with some conifers. Seasonal variation in the recovery of hoards and the importance of hoarded food with regard to a squirrel's annual energy demands are discussed. The importance of having hoards is compared among tree squirrel species.
