Three Central American Bat Communitis: Structure, Reproductive Cycles, and Movement Patterns
Recapture patterns of several species suggest that home range size may be positively correlated with body size; omnivorous species may have larger home ranges than similarly size species with more restricted diets.

Abstract The substantial body of research on Holarctic ground squirrels amassed over the past century documents considerable variability in morphological, cytogenetic, ecological, and behavioral

Demography and natural history of the common fruit bat, Artibeus jamaicensis, on Barro Colorado Island, Panamá
Bats were marked and monitored on Barro Colorado Island, Panama, to study seasonal and annual variation in distribution, abundance, and natural history from 1975 through 1980, and data gathered advances knowledge about flocking; abundance; feeding strategies; social behavior; species richness; population structure and stability.
The authors measured the cranial capacities of 225 species of bats from 14 families including all families and genera previously studied by Stephan and Pirlot (1970) to confirm their conclusions about encephalization and refine their first order correlation with dietary specializations.
