If you're thinking of Jason and the Argonauts, think again. In this book, the golden mouse is used as a model to explore conceptual issues in ecology across all levels of organization from organism to landscape, integrating reductionist and holistic ecological science. Through intensive study of a single species, the authors demonstrate biological and ecological information applicable to many fields, including conservation and resource management.

From the reviews:
"A concise scholarly volume that summarizes the natural history of the Golden Mouse ... . Highly recommended reading for students and professionals in mammalogy, ecology, wildlife biology, as well as readers with an interest in natural history." (Southeastern Naturalist, Issue 7/3, 2008)
"In The Golden Mouse: Ecology and Conservation, Barrett and Feldhamer have compiled a set of chapters that give us a glimpse into the intriguing world of their study species ... . I found this to be an interesting and generally enjoyable read. ... it will be of greatest appeal to ecologists and conservation biologists who likewise share a passion for small mammals. ... it should serve as a valuable guide for those investigating other species with which the golden mouse interacts." (Catherine E. Burns, Journal of Mammal Evolution, Vol. 16, 2009)
