Metadata (Data about data or how the map was made)

Occurs in greatest densities in moist, dense, forests along the coast, the Olympic Mountains, and on the west slope of the Cascades. The dominant deer mouse in the alpine zone of the Cascades and Olympics. Present on few islands and rare in the low elevations of the Puget Trough.

Core zones were Puget Sound Douglas-fir, Olympic Douglas-fir, the Cowlitz River, Sitka Spruce, Western Hemlock, Interior Western Hemlock, Silver Fir, Mountain Hemlock, Sub-alpine Fir, and Alpine/Parkland west of the Cascades. Occurs in the wettest forests east of the Cascade crest. Good habitats in all zones were closed forest and water/wetlands. Open forest in core zones was also good habitat.
