The common dormouse Muscardinus
avellanarius has one to two litters per season and in exceptional cases even three litters (Juskaitis 2014).
Ranging and nesting behaviour of the dormouse, Muscardinus
avellanarius, in diverse low-growing woodland.
Once we consider the probability of sampling, the gaps in the ranges of most of these genera become continuous, with very few still showing discontinuous distribution (Euroxenomys, Muscardinus
and in age models 2 and 3 also Myoglis, Paraglirulus and Eomyops).
Another species on the rise again, thanks largely to reintroduction schemes, is the dormouse, Muscardinus
avellanarius, found once more in woodland and thick hedges in Kent, Surrey, East and West Sussex, Bedfordshire, Worcestershire and Cambridgeshire.

avellanarius Osmoderma eremita
The glirids underwent a dramatic reduction in diversity during the late Vallesian in the coastal basins of Eastern Spain, being reduced to just two genera, Muscardinus
and Glis in the Catalonian basins (Agusti, 1990; Sese, 2006).
