This conclusion is supported by the findings of Pankakoski (1989), who observed that in Sorex araneus

The smaller common shrew (Sorex araneus
) is a velvety dark brown with pale belly - adults also have a light brown streak along the flanks.
Effects of habitat size and quality on equilibrium density and extinction time of Sorex araneus
En un estudio desarrollado durante un ano completo, Ma y colaboradores (1991) estimaron que la ingestion diaria de cadmio por la musarana Sorex araneus
, cuyo habitat se situaba en las proximidades de una fabrica de metal, era 50 veces superior que la del herbivoro Microtus agrestis (esto es, un factor de 50 veces).
Diet was expressed as frequency of occurrence (%) of prey items as reported by Churchfield (1982) for the diet of the common shrew, Sorex araneus
. All of the fecal samples came from animals collected during April through August when arthropod densities are at their highest (Punzo & Henderson 1999).

(2007) found that atypically colored shrews, Sorex araneus
, occurred more often under conditions leading to inbreeding, such as isolated populations exhibiting limited gene exchange with neighboring populations.

In the East Baltic region, shrews (Soricomorpha: Soricidae) are represented by five species: common shrew (Sorex araneus
Linnaeus, 1758), Laxmann's (masked) shrew (Sorex caecutiens Laxmann, 1788), pygmy shrew (Sorex minutus Linnaeus, 1766), least shrew (Sorex minutissimus Zimmermann, 1780), and water shrew (Neomys fodiens (Pennant, 1771)).
