Description: Smoked aluminum track stations are a useful technique for studying patterns of abundance and distribution of northern flying squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus). They are easily transported to remote field sites, allow permanent preservation of tracks, and yield frequency-of-occurrence information. A study in Douglas-fir (Pseseudotsuga menziesii) forests of northwestern California illustrates the use of the track stations, methods of data analysis, and habitat associations of the northern flying squirrel.
