Foraging habitat preferences of vespertilionid bats in Britain
The selection of foraging habitats by vespertilionid bats in Britain was quantified using a stratified sample of 1030 1-km squares. Quantitative analysis of habitat preference and avoidance on aExpand
Factors determining the abundance of vespertilionid bats in Britain: geographical, land class and local habitat relationships
1. Transect surveys of foraging bats in a stratified sample of 1030 1-km squares in Britain were used to compare bat abundance in different land classes. 2. Bat abundance remained constant from earlyExpand
Chiropteran types I and II interferon genes inferred from genome sequencing traces by a statistical gene-family assembler
TLDR
The statistical trace assembler described here provides a reliable method for extracting information from the many available and forthcoming partial or shallow genome sequencing projects, thereby facilitating the study of a wider variety of organisms with ecological and biomedical significance to humans than would otherwise be possible.

Hiding in plain sight: a study on camouflage and habitat selection in a slow-moving desert herbivore
TLDR
It is hypothesize that rocks improve juvenile tortoise camouflage and thus that tortoises select for habitat containing rock substrate, in part, due to a survival advantage conferred by such use. Expand
Volatile Compounds in Shoulder Gland Secretions of Male Flying Foxes, Genus Pteropus (Pteropodidae, Chiroptera)
TLDR
Sixty-five compounds, including hydrocarbons, carboxylic acids, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, esters, and amides, were identified among the four species. Expand
THE INFLUENCE OF BAT DETECTOR BRAND ON THE QUANTITATIVE ESTIMATION OF BAT ACTIVITY
ABSTRACT Bat detectors are commonly used to monitor bat behaviour. Earlier research has suggested that there may be systematic differences in the response of different detectors to bat calls. SuchExpand
Megachiropteran bats (Pteropus) utilize human referential stimuli to locate hidden food.
TLDR
Investigating the point-following behavior of a captive population of nondomesticated megachiropteran bats provides evidence that referential point following is not restricted to domesticated animals and indicates that early experience may be important. Expand
Seed Dispersal of Morus macroura (Moraceae) by Two Frugivorous Bats in Xishuangbanna, SW China
TLDR
It was found that germination percentage of all treatments involving ingestion by bats was significantly lower than control seeds and some germination parameters of seeds from different treatments changed, but no correlation between distance and seed deposition was found. Expand
