Range DescriptionApodemus uralensis occurs from central and eastern Europe through Russia, northern Anatolia and the Caucasus to central Asia (Panteleyev 1998, Storch 1999). In Europe, it occurs from the Carpathians and the Carpathian basin through southern Poland, Ukraine, and Belarus to the Baltic countries, extending south as far as Bulgaria. In Europe it occurs from sea level to at least 1,400 m in the Carpathians (MoÅ¡ansky 1962). From east Europe and Turkey, the species range extends east to the Altai mountains and northwest China (Xinjiang), south to the Caucasus. The southern and eastern limits of the species' range in Central Asia are poorly defined (Musser and Carleton 2005).
