Abstract:The subterranean rodents play key roles in the cropland, grassland and forest ecosystems because of their unique habitats. The dispersal of the rodents is closely related to the reproduction, habitat selection, as well as the environment damage. The dispersal is the mechanism of animals that extend distribution, transfer gene and improve evolution. Studying dispersal of the subterranean rodents is very useful for pest control and biodiversity conservation. However, it's difficult to study the dispersal of subterranean rodents because they live underground. This paper reviewed the dispersal of the subterranean rodents in term of causes, individual, time and ways based on the completed studies in the world. The new technologies and approaches were also proposed in this paper. The purpose was to provide some references for studying the dispersal of plateau zokor in China.
