Transcription Notes:
Added ditto tags to be consistent with other similar projects, minor edits. Checked location/species. -@meg_shuler I think it should be Arvicola ie water vole as a water vole found in Western North America was historically considered a member of this genus. -@siobhanleachman I agree, and have updated to Arvicola -@meg_shuler
