In the first series, conducted in early August, 1985, 13-lined ground squirrels in their nonhibernating phase as judged by weekly weight records were used as the recipient and either hibernating or active Richardson's ground squirrels were used as the donor. In the second series, conducted in June, 1986, in addition to the same arrangements as above, juvenile Richardson's ground squirrels were also used as the recipient. It is known that these animals do not normally hibernate until after mid-September based on field observations near Edmonton (Wang 1979).
