- The website for The Dormouse Hollow was created in September 1999.
In hard labour and with the help of a professional web-designer (thanks
Kathrin!) the framework was completed in November 1999. It is not to the
satisfaction of the said professional, but it is the best my html-editor
and I could do...
- At the 4th International Conference on Dormice
(Rodentia, Gliridae), 13 - 16 September 1999 in Edirne Turkey, Dr. Pat
Morris proposed - in the name of the scientific committee - that a website
and an e-mail newsletter dealing with dormice should be established in
order to facilitate contacts among scientists and to discuss standard methods
for future dormouse research. With regard to the positive experience I
have had with the maintaining of "The
Shrew Shrine" for many years, it was proposed that I take over
this duty for the Dormouse Specialist Group ... I am trying to do my best.
The following is a preliminary framework for this network. Many pages do
not work yet. I will be waiting for your contributions and suggestions
to make the "Dormouse Hollow" a functioning network ...
