In 1994 the University of Arkansas - Little Rock (UALR), in cooperation with the Nature Conservancy and the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission, began a faunal assessment of Camp Joseph T. Robinson MilitaryInstallation in North LittleRock, Arkansas. The purpose ofthe study was (1) to determine the distribution and the abundance ofnative ? fauna on the installation, (2) to survey the installation for rare and endangered species, and (3) to determine the impact ofhuman activities on sensitive habitats and on the fauna. During the fall (1994-1996), winter (1995-1996) and spring « (1995-1996) seasons, mammals were located by either live-trapping, mist-netting, scent stations, pitfall trapping, active hunting orspotlighting. Arc/INFO® and ArcView® 2.0 were used to visualize and analyze the data. ERDAS Imagine'' was « used for satellite imagery interpretation. We recorded 315 individuals representing 29 of the 54 possible mammalian species within central Arkansas. Two additional species were documented from UALR museum records. When habitats * were categorized into either Hardwood or Mixed Hardwood/Pine, we found more species occurring in Mixed Hardwood/Pine areas than in Hardwood areas. When the two habitat-associations were compared (techniques by ? Hutcheson; 1970 and Zar; 1996) there was no significant difference (P
