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
Stochasticity in Structural and Functional Characteristics of an Indiana Stream Fish Assemblage: A Test of Community Theory
In general, ecological assemblages and communities appear to be regulated primarily by either deterministic or stochastic processes. It is currently important to quantify the relative frequencies ofExpand
Dietary energetics of the insectivorous Mexican free-tailed bat (Tadarida brasiliensis) during pregnancy and lactation
Stomach content analysis of 20 pregnant (x body mass=13.4 g) and 18 lactating (x body mass=11.5 g) female Tadarida brasiliensis revealed that the diet, expressed as percent volume, consists largelyExpand

Mammals of the Eastern United States
"The authors have done a superb job of distilling a vast amount of information on the biology of the terrestrial mammals of the eastern United States in a style that will not only satisfy theExpand
Activity following arousal in winter in North American vespertilionid bats
Many bat species hibernate to conserve energy during winter and like all hibernators they commonly arouse. During these arousals, some bats may undertake activities away from the hibernation site.Expand
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
Prey Selection in a Temperate Zone Insectivorous Bat Community
Abstract I determined foods eaten by bats at Prairie Creek, Vigo County, Indiana, to test the null hypothesis that insectivorous bats eat primarily whatever is available. If bats eat what isExpand
Prey Consumed by Eight Species of Insectivorous Bats from Southern Illinois
Abstract We collected data on the diet of eight species of insectivorous bats (Chiroptera, Vespertilionidae): big brown bats (Eptesicus fuscus), red bats (Lasiurus borealis), evening bats (NycticeiusExpand
