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...
ELEPHANTS, WOODLANDS AND BIODIVERSITY IN SOUTHERN AFRICA
When elephant densities exceed approximately 0.5 per km[2], savanna woodlands are generally converted to shrub-lands or grasslands. The impact of such elephant-mediated habitat change on biodiversityExpand
Science and the Conservation of Bats
TLDR
The conservation implications of some recent advances in knowledge about the ecology and behavior of bats are presented and public interest in bats has vastly outstripped scientific research about them, presenting interesting challenges and opportunities for bat biologists. Expand
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
TLDR
In this review, information about bat foraging is considered in the context of structural and functional features, the former relating to bats' access to habitats of different complexity and the latter to their behavioural responses. Expand
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
Eating local: influences of habitat on the diet of little brown bats (Myotis lucifugus)
TLDR
A model system to investigate the abiotic and biotic interactions between habitat factors through this simple food chain to the top predator is outlined, suggesting that the bats use variable habitats. Expand
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
