The field mouse was studied as a problem in formulating the relationships between the ecological characteristics of murids and the agricultural conversion of the land. An analysis of the course of development of field rodents into agricultural pests and sources of infectious diseases are given. The nature of this process and the possibilities of using industrial methods to overcome the harmful activities of rodents are described. A history of the growth of the agricultural landform in the forest region of the European part of the USSR and the historical change in the distribution and ecology of the field mouse in connection with the agricultural conversion of the landform are given. Range (its boundaries in the pre-agricultural period and later times), the ecological path of settlement, biotypical distribution, locality as a result of the type of habitat, diet, burrows, nests, shelters, mobility, fertility and mortality, position in the biocoenosis, and population dynamics are discussed The basic factors of population dynamics and their connection with agricultural production and population dynamics in the initial (forest) and secondary (agricultural) landforms are given. The genesis of the harmful activity of field mice in connection with the agricultural conversion of the landform (the field mouse as a carrier of tularemia), the ecological relationship of the field mouse with ectoparasites, its contact with other species of animals, epizootological and epidemio-logical factors in connection with the agricultural conversion of the land and problems of the control of field rodents are also discussed. The book is intended for biologists, agronomists, and medical workers; those interested in problems of the evolutionary ecology of animals, the biology of murids, methods of their control, and means of sanitizing the natural brecding grounds of infection.
