Previously unknown dormouse habitat identified


Bayreuth researchers have shown for the first time that the dormouse, which is strictly protected in Germany, not only uses woody structures as a habitat, but also reed beds.

This evidence is of great importance for nature conservation and the adaptation of conservation measures. The study was part of geoecology student Raja Wipfler's Master's thesis and recently published in the Journal of Vertebrate Biology.
