Discriminant analysis of landmark data to identify
species of Microtus on the Great Plains of North America
by Steven C. Wallace, (at the time, Department of Geology, University

Was Microtus montanus present at the Jones l.f. during the late
Pleistocene as Davis (1987) suggested?
Why is this important?
- M. montanus is a montane species that is not
found in Meade County, Kansas today (Map 1).
- M. montanus is a species with m1s that
are indistinguishable from other five closed-triangle species of Microtus.

montanus (mountain vole) from the late- Wisconsinan Jones Local Fauna, Meade
Co., Kansas: Current Research in the Pleistocene, v. 18, p. 117-119.
