We studied the effect of maternal stress evoked by a severe stressor from the cues of predation risk during gestation on the growth of offspring in root voles Microtus oeconomus Pallas, 1776. Body mass of both male and female offspring was significantly reduced in the period from birth to...
Since voles, mice and shrews are important animals in food chains of river floodplains, there is a need for data on their spatial and temporal distribution in periodically flooded areas. During a live trapping study between two successive floods in an embanked river floodplain, the...
Studies on field voles Microtus agrestis Linnaeus, 1758 in lowland grasslands have shown them to be unselective grazers. The diet of the field vole in upland Britain was investigated using feeding trials with four of the dominant British upland monocots, Molinia caerulea , Nardus stricta ,...
We examined dental anomalies, including oligodonty, polydonty, connation, rotation, and misalignment in 510 gray foxes and 150 red foxes from southern Illinois (USA). Dental anomalies were significantly more common ( x 2 = 11.5, df = 1, p < 0.001) in gray foxes ( n = 177; 34.7% of sample) than...
The results of small mammal inventories at 11 sites ranging from sea level to 1000 m a.s.l. on the Masoala Peninsula in northeastern Madagascar are presented. The Rodentia and Lipotyphla (ex Insectivora) of this peninsula, that contain extensive areas of lowland rainforest and some montane...
The present study investigates the genetic structure of 12 roe deer Capreolus capreolus Linnaeus, 1758 population samples from Serbia, by screening a total of 334 individuals. We examined whether genetic differentiation exists in local populations in Serbia, and addressed the question whether...
Mole-rats from Karonga, Malawi, the type locality of Cryptomys hottentotus whytei , and a single female mole-rat from the Malawian Nyika Plateau exhibit a karyotype 2n = 4 6 chromosomes, wit h 1 5 metacentr ic an d 8 acrocentr ic chromosome, s ie NF (female) = 76. This trait, together with...
Winter diets of wolf Canis lupus Linnaeus, 1758 and lynx Lynx lynx Linnaeus, 1758 in Latvia and Estonia were investigated in 1997–2000 based on stomach contents of hunted animals and scats. Ungulates appeared to be the staple food for both predators. Lynx diet to a high extent consisted of...
The common opossum of the Atlantic forest, Didelphis aurita Wied-Neuwied, 1826 is predominantly terrestrial, but uses the vertical space of the forest regularly. It is the didelphid that most frequently uses large supports in vertical movements. Here we test the influence of age and seasonality...
We studied phenotypic relationships among 13 samples of two rock mice species: Apodemus mystacinus (Danford and Alston, 1877) from Anatolia ( n = 38) and A. epimelas (Nehring, 1902) from the Balkans ( n = 71). Cartesian coordinates of landmarks were collected on the skull and on the occlusal...
