Discarded Bottles as a Source of Shrew Species Distributional Data along an Elevational Gradient in the Southern Appalachians
TLDR
This study demonstrates the utility of discarded bottles as a quick and effective alternative method for surveying shrews, without the added mortality that occurs from pitfall- or snap-trapping.
Discarded Bottles as a Cause of Mortality in Small Vertebrates
TLDR
Discarded beverage bottles have been recognized as a source of mortality for small mammals since the 1960s and similar numbers of bottles likely occur in areas with species of shrews, rodents, or salamanders whose populations are declining.
Small-Mammal Mortality Caused by Discarded Bottles and Cans along a US Forest Service Road in the Cherokee National Forest
Abstract Discarded containers along primary and secondary roadways trap and kill small mammals, and recently, small-mammal remains were found in containers along roadside pull-offs in more remote

Discarded Bottles as a Mortality Threat to Shrews and Other Small Mammals in the Southern Appalachian Mountains
Abstract A total of 2,445 discarded bottles were inspected for skeletal remains at 50 roadside pull-off sites along the southeastern Blue Ridge escarpment of North Carolina and Georgia to assess
FIRST RECORDS OF CROCIDURA SUAVEOLENS (MAMMALIA, SORICOMORPHA, SORICIDAE) ON KARPATHOS AND SARIA ISLANDS (DODECANESE, GREECE)
Crocidura suaveolens was identified amongst skull remains from raptor pellets on Karpathos and in a discarded bottle on Saria. There are no data for this species in these two islands. In the
The Efficiency of Discarded Drink Containers for Small Mammal Detection on a Mediterranean Mountain
TLDR
The results suggested that the efficiency of discarded containers was limited by several factors: spatial issues concerning small sampling area and aggregation, temporal issues regarding long-lasting (and undetermined) effects in the field, trapping issues related to multiple capture power, container size, selectivity, and low detectability of some common species.
Survey of Discarded Bottles as an Effective Method in Detection of Small Mammal Diversity
ABSTRACT We assess if survey of containers discarded by people (and collected within environmental cleanup actions) may be an useful method in detection of small mammal species and how different
Educational Applications of Small-Mammal Skeletal Remains Found in Discarded Bottles
Abstract Environmental literacy is becoming an increasingly important part of national and state curriculum standards. Scientists can assist teachers by providing citizen-science research
