- MICROPARASITE ASSEMBLAGES OF CONSPECIFIC SHREW POPULATIONS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. Laakkonen, Juha; Fisher, Robert N.; Case, Ted J. // Journal of Parasitology;Dec2003, Vol. 89 Issue 6, p1153
Investigates the microparasite component communities of two species of shrews, Notiosorex crawfordi and Sorex ornatus, in southern California. No correlation found between the corrected estimate of parasite species richness and host abundance in either shrew species.
- MICROHABITAT AFFINITIES OF SMALL MAMMALS IN SOUTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA. Stancampiano, Anthony J.; Schnell, Gary D. // Journal of Mammalogy;Oct2004, Vol. 85 Issue 5, p948
We assessed the influence of 19 microhabitat factors on the distribution and abundance of small mammals at 60 plots across Fort Sill Military Reservation in Comanche County, Oklahoma. Trapping took place each spring from 1989 to 1992. We collected 15 small mammal species and used 10 of these...
- MICROSCOPIC ANATOMY OF THE DESERT SHREW, NOTIOSOREX C. CRAWFORDI. Ostrin, Samuel L.; Clark, William H. // Journal of the Idaho Academy of Science;Jun2010, Vol. 46 Issue 1, p1
Two male desert shrews, Notiosorex c. crawfordi (Coues), representing two localities from the Central Desert, Valle de los Cirios, of Baja California, MÃ©xico, were studied by light microscopic techniques to delineate baseline morphological criteria. The specimens were made into study skins in...
- NOTEWORTHY RECORD OF CRAWFORD'S DESERT SHREW (NOTIOSOREX CRAWFORDI) FROM SOUTHERN NEVADA. MANNING, RICHARD W.; HEANEY, MARTIN R.; SAGOT, MARIA; BAKER, ROBERT J. // Southwestern Naturalist;Mar2014, Vol. 59 Issue 1, p145
We review the known records of desert shrews from Nevada and report the results of genetic analyses of a specimen from Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, Nye County, Nevada, which help clarify the evolutionary relationships of the genus Notiosorex from southwestern United States.
- PLATE 32 SMALL SHREWS. // Peterson Field Guide to Mammals of North America;2006, p64
An encyclopedia entry for "small shrews" is presented. The merriam's shrew or Sorex merriami is pale gray-brown in color and has a white belly. The desert shrew or Notiosorex crawfordi is pale gray in color and has a short tail. The dwarf shrew or Sorex nanus is very small and has relatively...
- The Stephen H. Long Expedition (1819-1820), Titian R. Peale's field illustrations, and the lost holotypes of the North American shrews Sorex brevicaudus Say and Sorex parvus Say (Mammalia: Soricidae) from the Philadelphia Museum. Woodman, Neal // Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington;2009, Vol. 122 Issue 1, p117
While encamped for the winter of 1819-1820 at Engineer Cantonment along the Missouri River in present-day eastern Nebraska, members of Major Stephen Harriman Long's Expedition to the Rocky Mountains collected a number of animals that were previously unknown. Among the mammals were two soricids...
- Use of tactile cues by Notiosorex crawford! (Insectivora) in response to topographical features in the environment. Punzo, F.; Parker, M. // Journal of Environmental Biology;May2006 Supplement, Vol. 27, p335
The present studies were conducted on the ability of males of the gray shrew, Notiosorex crawfordi to use tactile cues to detect and respond to changes in topographical features of their environment. The animals were videotaped, digitized, and analyzed through video recordings. All subjects...
