Dear Shrew-Fessionals and Shrew-Mateurs,
Another list of publications provided by Prof. Sen-Ichi Oda from Nagoya University to add to the 1995 Shrew Bibliography. The papers concentrate on cytogenetics, anatomy, reproduction, parasitology, domestication and biochemistry. Thank you, Japan.
I hope that this encourages others to use this medium to present their work...
Your's shrewly,
Werner Haberl

Marina Silva:
Was out of the country so just read your note in regard to difficulties in capturing small mammals today. It is not unusual to find very low small mammal populations early inthe season and I suspect that is what you encountered. By now you are probably catching lots. I found over many years that the best bait consisted of just peanut butter and rolled oats but for lemmings adding a few ground rasins seemed to be beneficial. Make sure your pitfall trap bottoms are at least 25 cm below ground surface unless you are putting a bit of water in the bottom to drown the captives. Hope this is of some help. Good luck.

2) Shrew-o-notics
From: Werner Haberl <shrewbib@sorex.vienna.at>
There is a good summary of health precautions to take when handling bats (Constantine, D.G.1988. Health precautions for bat researchers. Pp. 491-528. In: Kunz, T.H. (ed.): Ecological and behavioral methods for the study of bats. Washington D.C.: Smithsonian Inst. Press).
I would like to accumulate similar data for shrews (or other small mammals), ie a list of diseases that could be transferred and safety precautions to take for researchers and people handling or keeping shrews. I was sometimes advised to wear gloves when handling shrews, but I must admit that I seldomly did and I assume that most of you don't either. However, during my work with shrews, I did once suffer from an illness (severe pain in the stomach for several weeks etc.). The cause has never been ascertained...
Any further leads would be appreciated.
Thank you,
'The Shrew Bibliography' 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
