In 1951, grain destroyed by house mice in strategic food stocks led the Rodent Research Section of the Ministry of Agriculture and fisheries to employ the Australian zoologist, Dr.Crowcroft. In his mouse watching station, Crowcroft observed the mice dealing with the situations that he had engineered. His research techniques, findings, and explanations are told with direct simplicity.
