The following is merely a short list of selected references on this topic, which was inspired by an inquiry (see "SHREW TALK" Vol. 1, No. 3). Of course, there is a great bulk of literature on this topic... One can hardly manage to get through the jungle of references a Biosis- or Zoological Records- search would reveal.
