The Shrew Bibliography. - A collection of more than 6000 references to research on the biology of the Soricidae (Insectivora, Mammalia) and small mammal ecology.

Papers and books on various topics (ecology, behaviour, anatomy, histology, genetics, physiology, predators, parasites, palaeontology, reproduction, development, ultrastructure, cytology, medical research, systematics, taxonomy, evolution, trapping and research methods, laboratory breeding, zoogeography, conservation etc.) as well as unpublished data (e.g. contributions to meetings, dissertations, theses) have been considered.

The data was compiled by searching the references in original papers I have collected for my own research on shrews during the past years. The many reprints and publication lists I received from colleagues world-wide and the personal correspondence resulting from my mailing of a questionnaire were of great help. All references were multiply checked and compared with existing bibliographies to minimise errors.

The bibliography, especially the CD-ROM version, should be a valuable and powerful tool for all researchers of shrew biology and related topics. It also gives an insight into the historical development of shrew research. Depending on your computer system, the CD-ROM allows sorting by author, title, publishing year, journal or language and the references are annotated with key words facilitating a fast search for specific topics. Many references are supplemented with a short abstract. User-specific fields have been included.

Only few copies left!
