Reproduction, growth and population dynamics of house mice in irrigated and non-irrigated cereal farms in New South Wales
Populations of house mice (Mus musculus L.) irrupt at irregular intervals throughout the wheatlands of south-east Australia and in parts of the arid and semi-arid inland. A previous study in South Australia postulated that such plagues occurred after unusual rainfall or flooding caused, during the normally arid summers, concurrent abundance of food and moist soil in which mice could burrow.
