This list should bring together shrew researchers from around the world. We agreed on creating such a list at the IV th International Colloquium of the Biology of Soricidae in Poznan/Poland, 09/2016. Soricidae are the topic, but we welcome also researchers from related fields. This list should foster scientific exchange about shrew-research topics. It should be a marketplace for contacts, research material, collaboration requests etc, but it should not be used for personal exchange and endless discussions, which are only of interest for a minority of the subscribers.
