This work is the result of a collaboration between Pierre Taberlet (University Joseph Fourier, Grenoble, France) and Luca Fumagalli (University of Lausanne, Switzerland). The research interest of PT was first to use owl pellets to investigate the ecology of small mammals, and is now the study of intraspecific phylogeographic structure of several European species. For several years, he has developed non-invasive sampling techniques to assess the genetic polymorphism of avian and mammalian populations. LF is studying mitochondrial DNA variation in shrew populations, and has been interested in using a non-invasive approach which would be more efficient than the time-consuming field trapping of these small mammals.
