Abstract:To study Cricetulus barabensis adaptation to habitat ecology, the internal organ mass of wild C. barabensis in Shandong province were measured. The results were as follows: the mass of internal organs increased significantly with aging. After the data of body mass was adjusted, this difference was no longer significant. The organ index, which decreased with aging, was significantly different in different age groups. These results indicated that the organ mass and the body mass had similar variation tendencies. The growth rate of internal organs was lower than the body mass. The internal organ mass and organ index of Cricetulus barabensis might be affected by aging and habitats.
