- 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...
- 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...
- Two new species of shrews (Soricidae) from the western highlands of Guatemala. WOODMAN, NEAL // Journal of Mammalogy;Jun2010, Vol. 91 Issue 3, p566
The broad-clawed shrews (Soricomorpha: Soricidae: Cryptotis) encompass a clade of 5 species--Cryptotis alticolus (Merriam), C. goldmani (Merriam), C. goodwini Jackson, C. griseoventris Jackson, and C. peregrinus (Merriam)--that is known collectively as the Cryptotis goldmani group and is...
- Dietary heavy metal uptake by the least shrew, Cryptotis parva. Brueske, Christopher; Barrett, Gary // Bulletin of Environmental Contamination & Toxicology;Dec1991, Vol. 47 Issue 6, p845
The article presents the study which aims to evaluate the accumulation of the heavy metals on the dietary earthworms which was collected from sewage sludge. It uses the least shrew or the Cryptotis parva, a secondary consumer wherein its natural diet includes earthworms which is a good indicator...
