Abstract We captured 11 Myotis sodalis and radiotracked them to foraging areas near Indianapolis International Airport during summer 2002. A series (3–7) of multiazimuth triangulations was used to obtain an estimate of the location of each bat throughout the night. Compositional analysis was used to compare habitat that bats used to available habitat at 2 spatial scales. At both spatial scales, bats preferentially used woodlands over other available habitats (especially developed habitats… 
UNUSUAL MIGRATORY BEHAVIOR BY AN INDIANA BAT (MYOTIS SODALIS)
The movement of bats is a subject requiring greater understanding among conservationists and wildlife managers. Close spatial movements as well as longer spatial movements, such as migration, can
Indiana bat roosting behavior differs between urban and rural landscapes
Urbanization may negatively affect forest obligate bat species. We compared the roosting behavior of federally endangered Indiana bats ( Myotis sodalis ) in a fragmented site, located on the leading
Home range and habitat selection of the Indiana bat in an agricultural landscape
Agricultural intensification has led to widespread declines in wildlife biodiversity across many taxa. North American bats provide valuable services for agriculture yet basic ecological understanding
Indiana Bats in the Midwest: The Importance of Hydric Habitats
Abstract The endangered Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis) requires very specific habitats to provide necessary day-roosting and foraging resources during the spring and summer months throughout its
The Indiana Myotis (Myotis sodalis) on an Anthropogenic Landscape: Newport Chemical Depot, Vermillion County, Indiana
Indiana myotis (Myotis sodalis) caught on Newport Chemical Depot, Vermillion County, Indiana used four primary and two alternate roosts, all within 6.3 km of one another, supporting the hypothesis of
Autumn Activity of Myotis sodalis (Indiana Bat) in Bland County, Virginia
Abstract Nocturnal activity and diurnal roosts of Myotis sodalis (Indiana bat) were studied during autumn swarming in 2000 near a hibernaculum in Bland County, VA. Bats were active in 9 habitats,
Diet of the Myotis sodalis (Indiana Bat) at an Urban/Rural Interface
TLDR
A study of the diet of the federally endangered Indiana bat at an urban/rural interface near Indianapolis International Airport in summer 2004 found the diet consisted of the same components reported in earlier studies.
ROOSTS OF INDIANA BATS (MYOTIS SODALIS) NEAR THE INDIANAPOLIS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (1997-2001)
TLDR
Long-term roosting ecology of the federally-endangered Indiana myotis, in a rapidly-developing area immediately southwest of the Indianapolis International Airport was examined, and traditional definitions of primary and alternate roosts were refined.

Nocturnal activity of the endangered Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis)
TLDR
Current models of habitat suitability for this endangered species should be modified, taking into account the use of wooded commuting corridors and the large home range of these bats.
A comparison of foraging by Eptesicus fuscus (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) in urban and rural environments
TLDR
Differences in foraging rates and the fact that rural bats spent significantly less time away from their roosts suggest that prey density was lower in the urban setting.
Foraging Behavior and Nocturnal Activity Patterns of Missouri Bats, with Emphasis on the Endangered Species Myotis grisescens and Myotis sodalis
Foraging behavior of nine species of bats, especially Myotis grisescens and M. sodalis , was studied in eastern Missouri by observing 400 bats to which were affixed Cyalume chemical lights. Observers
Summer Habitat and Ecology of the Endangered Indiana Bat, Myotis sodalis
TLDR
A nursery population of M. sodalis was discovered in Indiana and studied for 2 years, and social behaviors included “checking,” mothers carrying young to an apparently warmer portion of the roost tree, and apparent mother-young foraging flights as the young became volant.
Foraging-habitat selection by bats at an urban–rural interface: comparison between a successful and a less successful species
We compared habitat use of two sympatric species of bat in a rural area undergoing suburban development. The two species are similar in diet and foraging-habitat use but differ in current roosting
Bat community structure in an urban park
In summer 1990, we mist-netted bats on 35 net-nights, for 4 h each night, along tributaries of the River Rouge in surburban Detroit, Michigan, USA. The floodplains of these rivers are preserved as
BIRDS AND BUTTERFLIES ALONG AN URBAN GRADIENT: SURROGATE TAXA FOR ASSESSING BIODIVERSITY?
This study examines whether birds and butterflies may be used as surrogates for one another in assessing biodiversity at the community level. To do this, I compared the distribution and abundance of
Urban biogeography
TLDR
It was found that area alone was the best predictor of species richness, suggesting that increased area acts primarily to reduce extinction rates rather than to provide new habitats for specialized species.
Hibernation of the Big Brown Bat, Eptesicus fuscus, in Buildings
Although little empirical evidence was available prior to our study, many big brown bats, Eptesicus fuscus , were thought to hibernate in buildings in or near their summer roost. A total of 189
