The research on Microtus fortis as an experimental animal had been carried out for many years and made a series of progress. The purpose of this study was to review the progress of research on Microtus fortis in different areas including classification and distribution, morphology, ecology, characteristics of laboratory feeding and breeding, laboratory nutrition and environment, some biological characteristics, genetics, microbiology parasitology and so on. At the same time, we put forward what should be done in the future study on Microtus fortis promoted to an experimental animal.
