This chapter describes the behavior of treeshrews in their habitat. It explains the paths down which treeshrews travel in the forest outline where they seek and find food, and that their physical distribution thus describes ecological features with a potential to define the roles of species in the environment. The chapter explores treeshrews' substrate use, as well as their vertical use of the forest, foraging levels, and habitat ranges.
