Abstract

Interlocality variation in temperature and precipitation were analyzed for 11 localities in Baja California where kangaroo rats {Dipodomys agilis) were collected. Correlations between these data and kangaroo rat morphologic variation were determined. Principal component I (size) of the morphologic data was significantly correlated with latitude and longitude for both sexes. The female component II (nasal width, ulna length, and hind foot length) was correlated with July mean temperature and January mean precipitation.
