Based on the reported decreasing size of the median tine on I-1 from north to south, combined with the progressive enlargement of certain cranial characters along that gradient, we hypothesized that bite force among several taxa of Sorex along the...

Relative abundance and distribution of Common and Pygmy Shrews in Hordaland county, western Norway, were studied at a number of sites along a coast-inland gradient by examining museum collections, and by trapping. Pygmy Shrews were found at all si...

Animal personalities range from individuals that are shy, cautious, and easily stressed (a "reactive" personality type) to individuals that are bold, innovative, and quick to learn novel tasks, but also prone to routine formation (a &quo...

We collected shrews using pitfall traps in a forest area in Kvam, Hordaland, Western Norway in 1997/98. Altogether, 205 individuals of pygmy shrew, Sorex minutus and 129 individuals of common shrew, Sorex araneus were collected. Both shrew species...

Behavior of four shrew species is considered. Easily identified by an observer behavioral patterns were distinguished using a test of paring the animals of the same species, which are born in the same year, in the neutral arena. These patterns wer...
