Dobrinskiy N.L. LOCAL DYNAMICS OF RODENT ABUNDANCEAs a result of long-term investigations in the Middle Urals new approaches to the analysis of periodic wave-like dynamics of the rodents were proposed. We identified the need and argued the importance of isolation of spatial units in species populations. We establish the statements on the short cycles of functioning in the species with r-strategy were found. From these positions, features of the population formation and the general view of its dynamics in short-cycle species of rodents are shown. Key words: rodents, abundance, regular cycles, local scale, territorial unit of population.
