Keywords:Sorex maritimensis, Maritime Shrew, Picea mariana, Black Spruce, forest wildlife, New Brunswick
AbstractTwenty-one specimens of Sorex maritimensis (Maritime Shrew) were collected in coniferous forest of central New Brunswick, a habitat considered atypical for the species. We suggest S. maritimensis uses a wider range of habitat types than previously documented.
