Summer activity of Myotis lucifugus (Chiroptera:Vespertilionidae) at hibernacula in Ontario and Quebec
"Swarming" refers to the summer nocturnal flights through hibernacula by the five species of bats known to hibernate locally. A total of 6400 bats was handled during studies of swarming at 10 hiber...

Phyllostomid Bats (Chiroptera - Phyllostomidae) as Indicators of Habitat Disruption in the Neotropics
Mist netting bats at 11 sites in the vicinity of Akumal, Mexico between 7 and 19 January 1991 produced 363 bats representing 20 species. A comparison of captures revealed significant differences inExpand

The foraging behaviour and ecology of animal-eating bats
The results of recent studies of the foraging behaviour of animal-eating bats are considered in this review. The advent of small (< 1 g) radio transmitters has made it possible to collect data onExpand

USE OF SPATIAL FEATURES BY FORAGING INSECTIVOROUS BATS IN A LARGE URBAN LANDSCAPE
Abstract We analyzed the patterns of habitat use by insectivorous bats in Mexico City, one of the largest and most populated cities of the world. We tested the hypotheses that richer patches of food,Expand

Echolocation and pursuit of prey by bats.
Echolocating bats use different information-gathering strategies for hunting prey in open, uncluttered environments, in relatively open environments with some obstacles, and in densely clutteredExpand

Dynamics of jamming avoidance in echolocating bats
Animals using active sensing systems such as echolocation or electrolocation may experience interference from the signals of neighbouring conspecifics, which can be offset by a jamming avoidanceExpand

Species on the menu of a generalist predator, the eastern red bat (Lasiurus borealis): using a molecular approach to detect arthropod prey
One of the most difficult interactions to observe in nature is the relationship between a predator and its prey. When direct observations are impossible, we rely on morphological classification ofExpand

Recognition of Species of Insectivorous Bats by Their Echolocation Calls
The use of frequency, duration, and patterns of frequency change over time to identify 39 species of North American and African bats by their search phase echolocation calls is described. The dataExpand
