In questa pagina si è cercato di raccogliere la bibliografia scientifica riguardante il problema delle specie aliene di scoiattoli in Italia, in modo più completo possibile. Possono essere lavori un po’ tecnici per i palati meno allenati ma sono certamente la migliore fonte di informazioni precise ed inequivocabili ad oggi disponibili su questo tema, per questo troverete in questo database solo studi e ricerche pubblicati su riviste scientifiche o accreditate da enti di ricerca riconosciuti dalla comunità scientifica. Se notate mancanze o imprecisioni segnalatecele (info@piattoscoiattolo.it) e contribuite a rendere questo database ancora più completo.
