dc.description.abstract Twenty-one sites were surveyed for star-nosed mole (Condylura cristata) activity during May-October, 2001 and 2002. Star-nosed moles were live-trapped and their habitat characteristics were quantified and compared to habitat characteristics at nonuse sites, as well as capture sites of three other small mammal species: the short-tailed shrew (Blarina brevicauda), the whitefooted mouse (Peromyscus leucopus) and the meadow vole (Microtus pennsylvanicus). Star-nosed moles were captured at sites characterized by moist, clay-loam soils with a slightly acidic pH, prominent horizontal cover, and a nearby water source. Starnosed mole habitat was similar to that of short-tailed shrews and white-footed mice, but differed from that of meadow voles.
