Abstract

Smaller details of natural history often go undocumented to science if those details are not parts of larger studies, but small details can provide insights that lead to interesting questions about ecological relationships or environmental change. We have compiled recent important observations of distribution and reproduction of fishes and mammals. Included are new distributional records of mammals, and observations of reproduction in several mammals for which few data exist in Arkansas. A rare record of the long-tailed weasel, a species of special concern in Arkansas, is documented from Newton Co. We also provide evidence that Seminole bats likely reproduce in Arkansas.
