The natural history of Sorex longirostris was studied using more than 400 specimens from Alabama and Georgia and museum and literature data for specimens from throughout the range of the species. This shrew inhabits parts of 16 states and the District of Columbia, and is found from sea level to at least 2500 ft elevation. Population density in two plots in Chambers Co., Alabama, was estimated to be 12-18 individuals per acre (30-44 per ha). The sex ratio was nearly equal. Pregnant females were… 
Distribution and Status of Shrews in Arkansas
Between January, 1 988 and February, 1989 a total of 1 300 pitfall traps were placed in 150 sites covering 43 counties in Arkansas. Over 290 small mammals and numerousamphibians, lizards, tortoises,
Dietary Overlap of Sorex longirostris and S. cinereus in Hardwood Floodplain Habitats in Vigo County, Indiana
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to determine the degree of similarity in diets of Sorex cinereus and S. longirostris that occupy the same type of habitat but do not overlap in distribution in Vigo Co., Indiana and to hypothesized that morphological similarities between these two shrews reflect similar diets that contribute to allopatric distribution patterns in the county.
Reproductive Notes on Shrews (Family Soricidae) in Louisiana
TLDR
Examination of reproductive notes from specimen records for the southern short-tailed shrew, least shrew, and southeastern shrew in Louisiana found average number of embryos was 3.75, and one male S. longirostris possessed a testis length of 3 mm.
The Reproductive Cycles of the Vagrant Shrew (Sorex vagrans) and the Masked Shrew (Sorex cinereus) in Montana
TLDR
Average litter sizes in utero for both species were consistent with previously reported values for populations at similar latitudes and both species exhibit similar breeding patterns in sympatry.
The Small Mammals of Isle of Wight County, Virginia, as Revealed by Pitfall Trapping
In a study conducted in mid-winter, pitfall traps were used to assess the small mammal communities on 14 grids set in open habitats in Isle of Wight County in eastern Virginia. In all, 136 shrews of
Study design and interpretation of shrew (Sorex) density estimates
Population density estimates are a significant aspect of ecological theory. Of the approximately 6000 shrew literature citations, we located none that compared shrew density estimates and explained
Checklist of helminth parasites of Soricomorpha (= Insectivora) of North America north of Mexico
TLDR
A parasite-host and a host-parasite checklist of helminths found in Soricomorpha (= Insectivora) of North America north of Mexico are presented and the following new combinations are proposed.
Influence of coarse woody debris on the soricid community in southeastern Coastal Plain pine stands
Abstract Shrew abundance has been linked to the presence of coarse woody debris (CWD), especially downed logs, in many regions in the United States. We investigated the importance of CWD to shrew
CONTIGUOUS ALLOPATRY OF THE MASKED SHREW AND SOUTHEASTERN SHREW IN THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS: SEGREGATION ALONG AN ELEVATIONAL AND HABITAT GRADIENT
Southeastern shrew (Sorex longirostris) and masked shrew (Sorex ci- nereus) distributions converge in the southern Appalachians. A 306,454-pitfal l- trapnight survey in Alabama, Georgia, North
