Response of Northern bats (Myotis septentrionalis) to Prescribed Fires in Eastern Kentucky Forests
Abstract Prescribed fire is becoming a common management tool for restoring forests of North America; however, effects of prescribed fire on forest-dwelling bats remain unclear. During 2006 and 2007,… Expand
Habitat management for forest-roosting bats of North America: a critical review of habitat studies
Public and private land managers increasingly are being asked to consider habitat needs of bats (Chiroptera) when planning forest management activities. However, reliability of current data on which… Expand
Day-roost characteristics of northern bats in mixed mesophytic forest
Management of forests to promote habitat needs of bats requires information on all life requisites of each species. Data on roosting habitat of northern bats (Myotis septentrionalis) is limited for… Expand
Selection of day roosts by red bats in mixed mesophytic forests.
Limited information exists on the choice of day roosts by red bats (Lasiurus borealis) in mature deciduous forests. We radiotracked 10 adult female and 4 adult male red hats as they used 44 day… Expand
Meta-analysis of Summer Roosting Characteristics of Two Species of Myotis Bats
Abstract We compared roost site characteristics of the Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis) and northern bat (M. septentrionalis), which form maternity colonies in cavities and beneath bark of dead (snags)… Expand

Migratory routes, timing, and behavior are some of the least studied facets of bat biology, and possibly play roles in bat mortality rates observed at commercial wind energy facilities. We used… Expand
Bats in Forests: Conservation and Management
Although bats are often thought of as cave dwellers, many species depend on forests for all or part of the year. Of the 45 species of bats in North America, more than half depend on forests, using… Expand
Identification of prey of Myotis septentrionalis using DNA-based techniques
Abstract Identifying and characterizing trophic linkages is fundamental to understanding how prey availability affects predator behavior, distribution, and density, and to elucidating the extent to… Expand
Social networks of Rafinesque's big-eared bats (Corynorhinus rafinesquii) in bottomland hardwood forests
Abstract Understanding social relationships and organization in colonial bat species can provide valuable insight into species ecology and potentially aid in conservation efforts of rare bat species.… Expand
