Ozark pocket gopher … Missouri pocket gopher (Geomys bursarius missouriensis). The Ozark pocket gopher (Geomys bursarius ozarkensis) has recently been described as a new subspecies of the plains pocket gopher (G. bursarius) inhabiting north-central Arkansas and is considered a "species of greatest conservation need" in Arkansas; therefore, research on spatial use and life-history characteristics were conducted via radio telemetry to elucidate home range and mortality.

As part of a planned state-wide biotic survey of insects inhabiting this unusual microhabitat, we have focused our initial sampling efforts on the Ozark pocket gopher (Geomys bursarius ozarkensis; Geomyidae). Project Summary The Ozark pocket gopher (Geomys bursarius ozarkensis) is a range-restricted subspecies of the broadly distributed plains pocket gopher (G. bursarius) with documented populations only in Izard Co., Arkansas. Illinois Plains pocket gopher (Geomys bursarius illinoensis). Nucleotide sequence analysis of the cytochrome-b gene of mtDNA and univariate and multivariate statistical analyses of cranial morphology were used t Oklahoma pocket gopher (Geomys bursarius dutcheri).
