Impact of removal pitfall trapping on the community of shrews (Mammalia : Soricidae) in two African tropical forest sites
Removal trapping is still used for the study of tropical African shrews biodiversity and ecology, because shrew species identification requires cranio-dental analyses due to the existence of sibling species. Pitfall trapping has been found to be the most effective protocol to collect shrews. However, the impact of removal pitfall-trapping on density and diversity of shrew species is still unknown. In this paper, we test this impact on two African tropical forest shrew communities, by comparingdoi:10.1515/mamm.2003.67.1.133 fatcat:hwwnchpikbhvfdnwwxf5maytiu
