A Biodiversity Assessment of Bats (Chiroptera) in a Tropical Lowland Rainforest of Central Amazonia, Including Methodological and Conservation Considerations
In our study of bat diversity in the Amazon Basin, we captured bats in undisturbed continuous forest and in forest fragments at the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments Project (BDFFP) nearExpand

Small Tent‐Roosting Bats Promote Dispersal of Large‐Seeded Plants in a Neotropical Forest
In Neotropical regions, fruit bats are among the most important components of the remaining fauna in disturbed landscapes. These relatively small-bodied bats are well-known dispersal agents for manyExpand

Resisting habitat fragmentation: High genetic connectivity among populations of the frugivorous bat Carollia castanea in an agricultural landscape
Abstract Anthropogenically dominated landscapes are frequently a patchwork composed of manmade structures and natural habitat remnants. Especially tropical landscapes are progressively turning intoExpand

Tent building by female Ectophylla alba (Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae) in Costa Rica
Twenty-one species of bats around the world have been recorded using modified leaves as roosts, usually called ‘tents’ (Timm, 1987; Kunz and Lumsden, 2003; Rodríguez-Herrera and Tschapka, 2005). MostExpand

Life in a mosaic landscape: anthropogenic habitat fragmentation affects genetic population structure in a frugivorous bat species
Bats are often considered highly mobile and hence less susceptible to habitat fragmentation than other animals. We tested this basic assumption by studying populations of Dermanura watsoni, aExpand

Bats of Jaú National Park, central Amazônia, Brazil
ABSTRACT Although recognized as highly diverse, the bat fauna of the Amazon basin has been only patchily sampled. This paper combines data from five short surveys conducted between 1998 and 2001 inExpand

Roosting requirements of white tent-making bat Ectophylla alba (Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae)
ABSTRACT Roosting ecology and its correlates are among the major forces driving the evolution of bats. However, roost ecology remains one of the most poorly understood topics on the basic biology ofExpand

Energetics of tent roosting in bats: the case of Ectophylla alba and Uroderma bilobatum (Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae).
Roost selection in mammals is an important selective pressure, and many animals find shelter in previously existing structures. Furthermore, the microclimate of roosts is a crucial element for batExpand
