Harvest Mouse Art, Drawings, Paintings, Prints, Cards (Micromys minutus) - Wildlife Artist, Susan Shimeld Larmer Tree Studio
For my painting of a Harvest Mouse I collected a few stalks of wheat from a nearby field and using a variety of photographic reference material portrayed my Harvest Mouse in pastels.

The harvest mouse (Micromys minutus) is one of the most under-studied small mammals in Britain.
By combining population release, with the tracking population monitoring and modelling we hope to enhance understanding of harvest mouse ecology and perhaps gain insights into why the species is uncommon in northern England.
Conversely however, research may show that, through the implementation of appropriate land management on farms, Micromys can be successfully re-introduced to Northumberland, therefore offering an environmental, habitat (and possibly also financial) incentive to farmers and land owners to pursue environmentally friendly farming and move away from intensive cultivation methods.

We examined sequence variation in the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene (1140 bp, n = 73) and control region (842–851 bp, n = 74) in the Eurasian harvest mouse (Micromys minutus (Pallas, 1771)), with samples drawn from across its range, from Western Europe to Japan.

 Researchers try to turn the duds into studs | The San Diego Union-Tribune
Scientists could use the manipulations to increase the success of mating a particular male and female whose young would greatly increase the genetic variation of a population or would be likely to have hearty immune systems.
The harvest mouse, whose scientific name is Micromys minutus, is a 2-to 3-inch-long wheat-brown creature with a prehensile tail.
Scientists say that the species is in decline across much of its range in Europe and Asia, and that efforts to breed it in captivity have suffered from the females' tendency to fight, bite and lunge viciously at males to which they are introduced.

 Gilbert White, naturalist   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
For example, it was at Selborne in 1767 that Gilbert White first noticed that the harvest mouse (Micromys minutus), the smallest European mouse, with a body only two inches long, was a different species from other mice.
White was apparently the first to notice that the mouse closes up the hole in the side after it enters or leaves its nest.
The mouse, whose Latin name Micromys minutus means "the smallest tiny mouse", is so light that it can climb between grass stems using its two-inch prehensile tail, without touching the ground.

 Ruthi Brandt
I am now working with harvest mice (Micromys minutus) looking into mating behaviour, or more precisely – female mate choice, in a captive environment and population ecology in the field, as part of WildCRU’s Upper Thames Project.
A combination of several factors makes the water shrew in my opinion an unsuitable species in which to conduct a behavioural study within the time limits of a PhD study.
My belief is that the shrews – which are very nervous about any handling and manipulation - will not take kindly to such an attachment and will try to remove the rings.
