In June 2008, a series of 230 small mammals were collected from the Koanaka Hills of northwestern Botswana as a reference collection to aid in defining changes in the regional climate over the pastÕÛ2 million years. Just two months after this collection was made, large expanses of northwestern Botswana were consumed by wildfire, including the study site. Efforts to evaluate the effects of catastrophic fire on wildlife diversity and post-fire genetic composition in southern Africa are uncommon. The occurrence of this fire immediately after a comprehensive trapping effort allowed unanticipated research questions to be addressed. To evaluate the effect of large-scale fire on small mammal species abundance and diversity, we returned to the Koanaka Hills in July 2009 and replicated the collecting efforts of 2008, which yielded 510 small mammals. Analyses of the trapping data indicate only minor differences in species abundance and diversity among areas sampled.
