The effect of a supplemental food supply on the reproductive
attainment of the gray squirrel was investigated in the squirrel
populations of two food supplemented Experimental and two Control
woodlots near the campus of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and
State University, Blacksburg, Virginia, from December 1972 to
June 1974. Mast, the major fall-winter food for the squirrel,
was scarce to absent in the Fall of both 1972 and 1973. Due to
the emigration of the residents of one of the Experimental woodlots
in May of 1973, the study compared the reproductive, and other,
responses of the squirrel populations in the remaining Experimental
woodlot and the two Control woodlots. Two possible sources of
supplemental food existed in one of the Control woodlots which
may have influenced the reproductive attaimtent and survival of
the squirrels in that area.
