Scrub Oaks and Chipmunks

Muller's oak, Quercus cornelius-mulleri, is one of a number of oaks found in the pinyon belt of many desert ranges. The acorns of Muller's oak are small. Many small rodents, such as the dusky chipmunk, feast on these acorns, as well as pinyon nuts and juniper berries. The chipmunks scramble along the branches, collecting seeds and acorns in their pouches. In the desert, chipmunks are found only in these higher elevation pinyon-oak forests.
