Abstract Occupation of nest-boxes in Hazel Dormouse in relation to hole orientation - The Hazel Dormouse occupyed nest-boxes in all the study enviroments (deciduous wood, pine wood and mediterranean scrub). The species seems to prefer nest-boxes with southern exposure, but intra- and inter-specific competition could prevent this choice. During the period of December through February period visits to nest-boxes were not carried out, but it has been noticed that nests with Hazel Dormouse inside were observed in the rust days of March.
