Post-glacial re-colonization of European biota
A reduction in diversity from southern to northern Europe in the extent of allelic variation and species subdivision is seen; this is attributed to rapid expansion northward and the varied topography of southern refugia allowing populations to diverge through several ice ages.
Carpe noctem: the importance of bats as bioindicators
The earth is now subject to climate change and habitat deterioration on unprecedented scales. Monitoring climate change and habitat loss alone is insufficient if we are to understand the effects of…
The Status of the World's Land and Marine Mammals: Diversity, Threat, and Knowledge
A comprehensive assessment of the conservation status and distribution of the world's mammals is presented, compiled by 1700+ experts, to suggest common mechanisms driving diversity and endemism across systems.

Microchiropteran bats : global status survey and conservation action plan
The first comprehensive review to identify the conservation priorities for the 834 species of Microchiroptera is offered, which aims to be used as a basis for the development of more local or regional action plans, or actions for particular groups of bat species.
The Impact of Conservation on the Status of the World’s Vertebrates
Though the threat of extinction is increasing, overall declines would have been worse in the absence of conservation, and current conservation efforts remain insufficient to offset the main drivers of biodiversity loss in these groups.
Old world fruit bats : an action plan for their conservation
A review of the global conservation status of bats
A review of the more general issues relating to bat conservation highlights the priority areas where action is needed immediately at a global, regional or national level and highlights in particular the global importance of islands and caves for bats.
Feeding ecology of Pipistrellus pipistrellus (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) during pregnancy and lactation. I. Foraging behaviour
Timing of foraging flights of three species of bats in relation to insect activity and predation risk
Protective tree cover may allow earlier evening emergence of bats and therefore provide access to more food, and have implications for the conservation ofbats and their habitats particularly at high latitudes.
