Molecular Dietary Analysis of the Endangered Ozark Big-Eared Bat (Corynorhinus townsendii ingens)
This study detected 40 species representing two orders (Diptera and Lepidoptera and 11 families of insects and thus, providing new information regarding dietary habits of Ozark big-eared bats.
Impacts of Passage Manipulation on Cave Climate: Conservation Implications for Cave-Dwelling Bats
Abstract Human disturbance has caused declines in populations of many cave-dwelling bats and other cave-obligate organisms. Cave gating has been used to eliminate human disturbance, but few studies
Internal Cave Gating for Protection of Colonies of the Endangered Gray Bat (Myotis grisescens)
The results support the use of internal gates to protect and thereby enhance recovery of colonies of endangered gray bats in northeastern Oklahoma, USA, from 1981 to 2001.
Notes on the Occurrence of the Short-Faced Bear (Arctodus) in Oklahoma
The tooth is excellently preserved and is approaching an advanced state of wear on the occlusal surface. The tooth is deposited at the University of Arkansas Museum, Fayetteville, Arkansas (Accession
Population Connectivity of Endangered Ozark Big-Eared Bats (Corynorhinus townsendii ingens)
It appears autumn swarming sites and winter hibernacula play an important role in providing opportunities for mating; therefore, protection of these sites, maternity caves, and surrounding habitat is suggested to facilitate gene flow among populations of Ozark big-eared bats.
Hazen Mammoth (Mammuthus Columbi), Prairie County, Arkansas
InMay 1965, mammoth remains were exposed during the excavation of a borrow pit for construction of Interstate Highway 40, 2 mi northeast of Hazen, Prairie County, Arkansas. The proboscidian remains
Conservation Status of the Endangered Ozark Big-eared Bat (Corynorhinus townsendii ingens) - a 34-year Assessment
Direct counts of Ozark big-eared bat (Corynorhinus townsendii ingens) in hibernacula and maternity roosts were analyzed from 1977 to 2010. We compiled data from 1,330 survey events at 268 sites: 77
Occurrence of the Puma, Felis concolor, from Svendsen Cave, Marion County, Arkansas
Apartial skeleton including fragmental skull and mandibles of the puma, Felis concolor, was recovered from Svendsen Cave, Marion County, Arkansas. The remains are thought to be of Late Pleistocene
It is documented the first report of egg deposition by P. angusticlavius and confirmed speculations on the reproductive habits and nesting behavior of an endemic Ozark salamander.
Internal Cave Gating as a Means of Protecting Cave-Dwelling Bat Populations in Eastern Oklahoma
Of the 45 species of bats found in North America, about 18 rely substantially on caves throughout the year. Thirteen of these species are obligate cave-dwelling bats using caves year-round. They use
