Activity Patterns of Cave-Dwelling Bat Species During Pre-Hibernation Swarming and Post-Hibernation Emergence in the Central Appalachians

Overall bat activity was low at all sample sites during autumn and spring periods except at sites closest to hibernacula, but date and ambient temperatures generally appeared to be major drivers of activity in both seasons.

Population trends for two Malagasy fruit bats.

Reproductive Ecology of Wrinkle-Lipped Free-Tailed Bats Chaerephon plicatus (Buchannan, 1800) in Relation to Guano Production in Cambodia

Assessment of the reproductive phenology and body condition of Chaerephon plicatus in Cambodia found significant declines occurred in body condition between the late wet season and the late dry season, suggesting that bats experience increasing energetic stress as the dry season progresses.

Changes in the Forest Bat Community After Arrival of White-Nose Syndrome in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas

Abstract - Populations of some cave-hibernating bats have undergone declines in recent years due to an introduced fungus (Pseudogymnoascus destructans) that causes the disease white-nose syndrome

Big City Living: A Global Meta-Analysis Reveals Positive Impact of Urbanization on Body Size in Lizards

Urban environments pose different selective pressures than natural ones, leading to changes in animal behavior, physiology, and morphology. Understanding how animals respond to urbanization could

Species diversity and suitable habitat prediction of Chiroptera in the Luoxiao Mountains

: The Luoxiao Mountains are a main chain of north-south mountains in southeast China, covering approximately 67,600 km 2 . It is considered a biodiversity hot spot that served as glacial refuge

A Preliminary Assessment of the Caves and Bats in Kaligandaki Canyon, Western, Nepal

By virtue of geology, Nepal harbours hundreds of caves and provides potential habitat for a large variety of bats. However, limited studies have focused on cave dwelling bat species in Nepal. Our




El monitoreo acustico de murcielagos usando detectores ultrasonicos esta siendo utilizado recientemente como una herramienta de muestreo adicional. Mediante acustica y diversos metodos de captura en

Morcegos Urbanos: Status do Conhecimento e Plano de Ação para a Conservação no Brasil

Urban bats: Knowledge Status and Action Plan for Conservation in Brazil This study analysis information on the bat species recorded in urban and suburban areas in the aspects of distribution,

Science and the Conservation of Bats

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.

The microchiropteran bat fauna of Singapore

ABSTRACT The historical mammalian literature and recent surveys document a total of 24 microchiropteran species for the small equatorial island nation of Singapore. Intensive surveys carried out in

Contrasting habitat use of morphologically similar bat species with differing conservation status in south‐eastern Australia

It was found that the three species varied in their habitat use with no one landscape type used more extensively than other types, and M. norfolkensis was more likely to occur in low-lying, non-urban, riparian habitats with little vegetation cover.

Inferring persistence of indigenous mammals in response to urbanisation

It is recommended that state and local governments design and adopt a comprehensive strategy for managing habitat networks that cross jurisdictional boundaries and encompass the greater Melbourne area to enhance prospects for the survival of mammals.


Relatively little attention has been devoted to the urban ecology of bats (Chiroptera) despite their ecological importance. Although previous studies have indicated that urbanization has a negative

The urban matrix and artificial light restricts the nightly ranging behaviour of Gould's long‐eared bat (Nyctophilus gouldi)

Cities are heterogeneous landscapes, with remnant vegetation interspersed amongst areas designed for human use. Native wildlife remaining in urban areas are only likely to thrive and persist if they
