About this book

In this paper the authors describe new or additional records of four species of shrews (Soricidae), nine species of bats (Hipposideridae. Vespertilionidae, Molossidae), and one species of rodent (Muridae) from Ghana. These records add to our knowledge of the distribution of small mammals in Ghana especially those occurring on the Accra Plains. A zoogeographic explanation for these distributional data is sought in the context of the Dahomey Gap phenomenon.
