Species diversity of small mammals among the five field sites sampled at Flathead Lake, Montana. Each dot represents the Shannon-Wiener diversity index for the site for each of the 2 or 3 years sampled. Species diversity on the two islands was significantly less than at the three mainland sites (ANOVA: F (4,7) = 8.248, P = 0.009; horizontal bars represent the mean indices). Abbreviations: MEL, Melita Island; WHI, Wild Horse Island; YB, Yellow Bay; PBA, Polson - Big Arm; EYB, East Yellow Bay
