Influence of pitfall versus Longworth livetraps, bait addition, and drift fences on trap success and mortality of shrews

Abstract

Pitfall trapping is believed to be the most efficient method for capturing shrews (Sorex spp.); however, Longworth live-traps have been used successfully in North America and Great Britain. Due to high metabolic rates, previous attempts to livetrap shrews have been faced with very high (exceeding 95 % in some circumstances) mortality rates. Here we report… (More)
