Dormouse Talk

A mailing list on dormouse biology


"Dormouse Talk" is an e-mail list to deal with research problems, announcements, and generally to facilitate contact among people working in some way with dormice; Such a list has also been encouraged by many non-scientists that have shown to have a variety of questions and observations that could be relevant to the scientific discussion. The discussion includes topics ranging from dormouse ecology, behaviour, physiology, anatomy, taxonomy, parasites, predators, genetics and palaeontolgy to frequently asked "non-scientific" questions and general problems of small mammal ecology, e.g. trapping and marking methods. Dormouse Talk mail will be sent to all Dormousers on E-mail.

Dormouse Talk is a scientific, moderated list, i.e. virus warnings, chain mail, "fluffy little critters" postings and spam won't get through.
