Data from an experimental study to determine the impact of snow hardness on lemming locomotion

Mathilde Poirier, Dominique Fauteux, Gilles Gauthier, Florent Dominé & Jean-François Lamarre
Lemmings are an essential link of the Arctic food web as they are the main prey of many predators inhabiting these regions. These small rodents exhibiting cyclic fluctuation of their population can stay active throughout the winter and must dig a network of tunnels in the snow to reach vegetation on which they are feeding. Therefore, snow hardness where they dig has the potential to affect their effort while digging as well as their performance....
