Foraging-habitat selection by bats at an urban–rural interface: comparison between a successful and a less successful species
We compared habitat use of two sympatric species of bat in a rural area undergoing suburban development. The two species are similar in diet and foraging-habitat use but differ in current roostingExpand
Capture and Reproductive Trends in Summer Bat Communities in West Virginia: Assessing the Impact of White-Nose Syndrome
TLDR
It is predicted that capture rates would decrease in 2010 and the energetic strain of WNS would cause delayed or reduced reproduction, as denoted by a greater proportion of pregnant or lactating females later in the summer and a lower relative proportion of juvenile captures in the mid–late summer.

FORAGING HABITAT OF THE INDIANA BAT (MYOTIS SODALIS) AT AN URBAN–RURAL INTERFACE
Abstract We captured 11 Myotis sodalis and radiotracked them to foraging areas near Indianapolis International Airport during summer 2002. A series (3–7) of multiazimuth triangulations was used toExpand
Why the Bat Did Not Cross the Road?
Roadways are nearly ubiquitous parts of the modern landscape, but their impact on bats remain relatively unknown. We studied the influence of vehicular traffic on the behaviour of commuting bats nearExpand
Modeling the indirect effects of road networks on the foraging activities of bats
TLDR
Simulation models explored how roads in proximity to maternity roosts influenced foraging activities of the endangered Indiana bat and established a foraging success threshold, above which Indiana bats currently persist, which represents the time virtual bats spend in foraging habitat during the simulation period. Expand
Foraging Behavior of Eastern Red Bats (Lasiurus Borealis) at an Urban-rural Interface
TLDR
L. borealis foraged in woodlands and over newly planted tree fields, open water, park and pasture lands more than predicted by randomly generated points and avoided highly urban areas such as commercial lands, gravel pits and transportation corridors. Expand
BAT COMMUNITIES IN HIGHLY IMPACTED AREAS: COMPARING CAMP ATTERBURY TO THE INDIANAPOLIS AIRPORT
Little information is available about how bats respond to landscape-scale disturbances . Herein is presented a comparison of two distinct forms of managed lands . Camp Atterbury is an active militaryExpand
Use of Artificial Roost Structures by Bats at the Indianapolis International Airport
TLDR
After 10 years in place, it appears that Indiana bats are acclimated to boxes, as 6 of them were being used rather regularly by Indiana myotis. Expand
WHITE-NOSE SYNDROME AND WING DAMAGE INDEX SCORES AMONG SUMMER BATS IN THE NORTHEASTERN UNITED STATES
TLDR
It is concluded that, at this larger geographic scale, WDI is not a clear indicator of bat health, and trends were weak. Expand
