This book gathers accurate recommendations and techniques, based on those genérally accepted in the literature and adapted from the experience of the different authors during rodent surveys and laboratory work. Its presentation is designed to work in the fields with a clear and colorful organization of each chapter with: inserts providing definitions and recommendations, protocols detailed step by step, and an emphasis on illustrations with several photographs.
