Data On The Distribution Of Selected Soricomorpha And Rodentia Species In Poland


We present current data on the occurrence of four Soricomorpha and 15 Rodentia species. The mammals were collected during trapping of common shrews and yellow-necked mice for chromosomal research and the common hamsters for phylogeography and genetic variability research. The maps of species occurrence were created in ArcGIS and each map is accompanied by the list of localities with geographic coordinates and year of capture.
