Nine species of mammals are recorded for the Azores islands: one insectivore (Erinaceus europaeus), two bats (Myotis myotis, Nyctalus azoreum), one lagomorph (Oryctolagus cuniculus), three rodents (Rattus norvegicus, R. rattus, Mus musculus domesticus) and two carnivores (Mustela nivalis, M. furo). Here, notes on the origin and known distribution are given for each species, together with taxonomical and ecological cmments. Except for bats all the remaining species seem to have been introduced under the influence of the man's exploratory and commercial activities [less ▲]

From 1982 to 1987, 165 otter spraints samples were collected in the Marais Poitevin area (Western France). Eel is the main prey whichever way the results are presented: relative occurrence, relative abundance or relative biomass. Despite their high frequency or abundance in the spraints, other preys such as Atherina, mosquito-fish, stickelback, stone loach, bluegill or invertebrates, are quite negligible as far as biomass is considered. In turn, less frequent bigger preys (mammals, tenches) are of geater importance. Except for cyprinid fishes, more frequent in spring, no marked seasonal variations were found in the otters diet.

1799 skulls of common vole and 535 skulls of pine voles from different Belgian populations have been studied in three aspects: i) the pattern of the nasal-frontal and premaxillary-frontal sutures. This pattern is an excellent criterion by which identify the both species, and it is almost always accurate. ii) the value of ratios between a skull's height and the length of its diastema. This technique enables one to discriminate between common vole specimens with ratios above 95 % and pine vole specimens below 86%. iii) the width of the interorbital constrition. This seems to be an equally good criterion of identification, even for young animals. Hovewer, in Europe, it seems to have a clinal variation, a finding which should be verified. For the Belgium populations studied, the values for the common vole range from 2.60 to 3.50 mm (mean 3.09 mm). In the pine vole they range from 3.30 to 4.00 mm (mean 3.65 mm). [less ▲]
