Dear Shrew-Fessionals and Shrew-Mateurs,
Following Shrew Talk Vol. 1 No. 4, this is the second part of the summary of old inquiries that have hitherto been on the bulletin board of The Shrew Site.
I wish all of you enjoyable summer holidays (?). The Shrew Site will remain active, but you need not fear that your mailbox will be flooded. Please stay with us...

I would like to join Shrew Talk list. My research subject is small mammal ecology and behaviour, but most of my research has been done on small rodents. Only recently I became interested in shrews,and I would like to learn as much as possible about recent achievements in the field of shrew ecology.
Best regards,
Joanna Gliwicz
Inquiry by Sylvia Donato, Feb. 1997
Is it possible that large numbers of shrews (Sorex cinereus, and a few Blarina brevicauda) one year could result in low numbers of Microtines the following year? My trapping methods are as follows: Each trap station contains three snap traps and one pitfall trap (to target shrews). When I consider numbers of trapnights, do I include the pitfall traps in the count?

Information on montane shrews: I am interested in knowing if the montane shrew (Sorex monticolus) has ever been recorded for Owyhee county, southwestern Idaho. We recently trapped two specimens in a shrubsteppe community in the Owyhee desert at 5880 feet. I also am interested in any information on published studies of habitat association of the montane shrew. I am seeking this information as it has been suggested to me that the shrews occurrence in our study area, although not entirely unexpected, is unusual.
Thank you
Jason Sutter
Inquiry by Kartik Shanker
November 1996
I have been working on small mammal communities in tropical forests in south India for the past three years. My work has been in the high altitude forest grassland systems that are a feature of this system. We have looked at population dynamics, community structure, habitat use, competition and molecular genetics. I would like to get in touch with others who are working in the same or similar fields. Are there any related web sites ? Since small mammals in tropical systems is a relatively unworked area of research, I would particularly like to discuss it with others who are doing the same thing.
ÒThe Shrew BibliographyÓ is a collection of more than 6000 references to research on the biology of the Soricidae (Insectivora, Mammalia) and small mammal ecology. More info: http://members.vienna.at/shrew/shrewbib.html

Distribution Maps
I would like to put up some new pages on The Shrew Site: Anybody who has distribution maps of shrew species (local /country), that she/he would be willing to put up on the site, should contact me a.s.a.p. at:
Thank you, Werner
All replies to the Shrew Talk inquiries should be posted to the group. However, if you prefer to reply to someone personally, *I* would appreciate receiving a copy of the mail (Cc or Bcc) and/or a summary of the "outcome".
Reply to shrewbib@sorex.vienna.at - include the words "Shrew Talk" in the subject line.
For the present, this is also my personal e-mail. If you would like mail to go to Werner Haberl rather than to the group, DO NOT include the words "Shrew Talk" in the subject line and/or please indicate in the body of the letter that it's personal.
To be removed from the list, write to the same address and ask to be removed. ***********************************************************************
