We have compared population demography parameters of common small mammals in trap lines obtained by two methods. We applied capture-mark-recapture method (CMR) to estimate resident population density and non-resident activity, and irretrievable requisitioning method (IR) was used to estimate abundance. Though the IR reflects the abundance of small mammals in general it can distort the species ratio in community. Multiple regression analysis revealed that the results obtained with IR were influenced by both resident population density of the species and non-resident activity of small mammals. These factors together explained 88 % of the variance and their contributions in multiple correlation model were r = 0,39 (residents) and r = 0,46 (non-residents) as valued by semipartial correlation.
