Are endoparasites of common shrews (Sorex araneus) sensitive to tree species conversion in sub-Arctic birch forests?

Abstract

Shrews (Soricomorpha) are among the most numerous small forest dwelling mammals in boreal forests ecosystems. In Norway large areas of sub-Arctic birch (Betula pubescens) forests have gradually been replaced by non-native spruce (Picea abies) plantations during the last century. This conversion has led to changes in forest floor vegetation and soil… (More)
