Increases in mesopredator populations due to habitat fragmentation may have cascading effects on prey (e.g., songbirds) and may increase competitive interactions within the guild. We compared micro-and macrohabitat selection of the Virginia opossum (Didelphis virginiana) between areas with and without removal of the raccoon (Procyon lotor), a putative competitor, in a fragmented habitat in north-central Oklahoma. Live trapping conducted in 1998-2001 resulted in 482 total captures of opossums.doi:10.1644/103 fatcat:i6i5ud4srfaijngp4abwvu5vam
