This data was gathered to test the hypothesis that house mice abundance in south-eastern Australian wetlands during austral summer is due to increased monocot seeds (grass seeds). Data is presented in long-form displaying house mice abundance per wetland per survey in Microsoft Excel. Observations of eastern grass owls (Tyto longimembris) and eastern barn owls (Tyto alba delicatula) are also tabulated. Calculation code is also included which summarizes data per week and per Typha flowering period.
