Abstract The decline of bat populations across Europe has generated considerable interest and activities for the conservation of this enigmatic group of mammals. However, the factors influencing their distribution and species richness are still poorly understood, particularly on regional scales. We used the presence/absence data of the bat atlas of the German federal state of Bavaria (grid cell area ∼34 km 2 ) to estimate the species–area curve and to compare the predictive power of… CONTINUE READING
