The Northern bat, Eptesicus nilssonii, is the most common species among northern chiropteran populations. The species is noted for its long hibernation period with low mortality rate. We investigated the morphology of E. nilssonii blood cells during hibernation, hematological parameters including hemoglobin level, red blood cell (RBC) count, total white blood cell (WBC) count, and differential WBC count. The study revealed changes of several hematological parameters in hibernating bats, with… Expand
FIRST RECORDS OF BAT PARASITES IN KARELIA
First data on parasites from bats (Chiroptera) in Karelia are presented. Bats were captured at hibernacula in Lahdenpohsky and Sortavalsky Districts of Karelia in March 2010 and February 2011.Expand
Dynamic Function and Composition Shift in Circulating Innate Immune Cells in Hibernating Garden Dormice
TLDR
Major differences are found in the neutrophil oxidative burst capacity (NOC), with shallow cell responses during torpor and a highly significant increase by up to 30-fold during arousals, which might have clinical relevance in the context of therapeutic hypothermia and reperfusion injury. Expand

Haematological parameters of pond bats (Myotis dasycneme Boie, 1825 Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) in the Ural Mountains
TLDR
With age, the number of erythrocytes and the haemoglobin level increase, but the leukocytic chain remains relatively stable, and changes in haematological parameters were observed in the bats caught in the season of preparation for long hibernation. Expand
Profiles and morphology of peripheral blood cells in three bat species of Karelia during hibernation
TLDR
A higher count of lymphocytes, eosinophils and basophils was revealed in the northern bat distinguished by increased cold resistance versus the Brandt’s and brown long-eared bats. Expand

TLDR
This study provides important hematological values for Neotropical bat species and significantly expands the knowledge on basal physiological measurements of Chiroptera. Expand

1. Hematological parameters in the male and female bats differ only with respect to number and volume of erythrocytes: larger number of smaller cells found in males corresponds to smaller number ofExpand
Blood cell dynamics during hibernation in the European Ground Squirrel.
TLDR
The data show that the leukocyte count drops dramatically after entrance into torpor and that euthermic cell counts are restored within 1.5h after onset of arousal, even before body temperature is fully normalized. Expand
Hematological data from tropical American bats.
TLDR
Hematological values and diameters of erythrocytes are reported for bats from Colombia, Puerto Rico, and St. Croix and certain abnormalities in the blood picture were observed, and data are discussed in comparison with those obtained by others. Expand
Erthyrocyte changes in the hibernating woodchuck (Marmota monax).
TLDR
It would appear that there are a greater number of smaller cells present in the circulation of the hibernating woodchucks as compared to that of the active woodchuck, which may result from the combined effects of increased life span, decreased destruction and continued, but slowed, production of red blood cells.

The Resistance of a North American Bat Species (Eptesicus fuscus) to White-Nose Syndrome (WNS)
TLDR
Findings indicate that big brown bats are resistant to White-nose Syndrome, and are not significantly different in length from those previously reported for this species. Expand
A comparison of the hibernation patterns of seven bat species in Estonia
TLDR
The results suggest that during the hibernation season in the north of Europe, pond bats focus on saving energy during arousals and subsequent periods of euthermy, whereas Natterer'sbats focus onsaving energy during hibernation. Expand
