A mark-recapture study of cave bats was carried out in the Alto Vale do rio Ribeira, SE Brazil. The size of the colonies varied monthly, indicating the occurrence of frequent movements among caves and a low degree of roost fidelity for the commonest species: Desmodus rotundus, Carollia perspicillata, Anoura caudifer, Artibeus fimbriatus. Phyllostomines (Trachops cirrhosus, Chrotopterus auritus) and Peropteryx macrotis seem more sedentary, as suggested by their higher recapture rates. D…

Movements of three mormoopid bat species (Chiroptera, Mormoopidae) among three underground roosts in southeastern Mexico
Abstract The movement of individuals between roosts allows gene flow and influences the spatial distribution, dynamics, and genetic structure of populations. The objectives of this study were to
Estimation of bat colony size even with low recapture rates: an example based on the Cormack-Jolly-Seber model in Oaxaca, México
Introduction: Reproduction is a critical phase for most living organisms and in bats the reproductive strategies exhibit considerable complexity and variability. Objective: In this paper, we describe
Long-distance movement by a great fruit-eating bat, Artibeus lituratus (Olfers, 1818), in southeastern Brazil (Chiroptera, Phyllostomidae): evidence for migration in Neotropical bats?
TLDR
The longest bat movement recorded in Brazil is reported, along 113 km in a straight line, from a mixed Araucaria forest in Curitiba, PR, to the Atlantic Forest, Alto Ribeira, SP, by a female Artibeus lituratus (Olfers, 1818), over a period of 14 months.
Movements of bats (Mammalia, Chiroptera) in Atlantic Forest remnants in southern Brazil
TLDR
The results suggest that even small forest isolates are valuable for the maintenance of some bat species because they offer many of the resources they need or because they are spatially distributed in a pattern that allows use of the entire landscape.
Habitat fragmentation and the prevalence of parasites (Diptera, Streblidae) on three Phyllostomid bat species
TLDR
Evidence is provided that some species of Streblidae may respond differently to habitat fragmentation than their hosts, generating changes to bat‐ectoparasite interactions in fragmented areas.
How Social Structure Drives the Population Dynamics of the Common Vampire Bat (Desmodus rotundus, Phyllostomidae)
TLDR
Using autosomal and mitochondrial markers on vampires from Mexico, French Guiana, and North Brazil, from both roosting and foraging areas, an isolation by distance at the wider scale and lower but significant differentiation between closer populations is observed.

TLDR
The results suggest that even small forest isolates are valuable for the maintenance of some bat species because they offer many of the resources they need or because they are spatially distributed in a pattern that allows use of the entire landscape.
Bat diversity in the western Brazilian Pantanal
TLDR
The community of bats in the Pantanal proved rich and diverse, with differences among subregions, possibly reflecting their complex landscape and different habitats.
SEASONALITY AND FIDELITY IN ROOST USE OF THE MEXICAN FREE-TAILED BAT, TADARIDA BRASILIENSIS, IN AN URBAN SETTING
TLDR
Female bats were recaptured more often and spent more days in the study area than female bats, suggesting a sexual difference in roosting behavior, and populations are defined at greater spatial scales than included in this study.
Morcegos cavernícolas da região do Distrito Federal, centro-oeste do Brasil (Mammalia, Chiroptera)
TLDR
Surprisingly, Lonchophylla dekeyseri, considered to be the only endemic bat species in the Cerrado ecosystem, was observed in three of the surveyed caves, and further biological studies are necessary to determine the biology of L.dekeyseri and the necessity of its conservation.

Ecologia de populações de morcegos cavernícolas em uma região cárstica do sudeste do Brasil
TLDR
It is suggested that the structure of a roost's community is primarily determined by the location: the more isolated a cave, the greater and more diversified tends to be its community, regardless of the caveis morphometric characteristies («opportunistic occupation»).
Three Central American Bat Communitis: Structure, Reproductive Cycles, and Movement Patterns
TLDR
Recapture patterns of several species suggest that home range size may be positively correlated with body size; omnivorous species may have larger home ranges than similarly size species with more restricted diets.
Transient Behavior, Nocturnal Activity Patterns, and Feeding Efficiency of Vampire Bats (Desmodus Rotundus) under Natural Conditions
TLDR
During 5 netting nights, 99 vampire bats (Desmodus rotundus) were taken in a mist net stretched before the entrance of a permanent cave roost in Tabasco, suggesting there may be multiple diurnal roosts among which individuals shift on a more or less daily and perhaps opportunistic basis.
Homing, Movements, and Longevity of Bats
As far as is known, bats were first banded in the United States in 1916, when Dr. A. A. Allen, an ornithologist, marked five pipistrelles with bird bands (Allen, 1921). Little banding of bats was
Energetics and the Distribution of Vampires
TLDR
The limits in distribution of Desmodus are correlated with the 10°C minimal winter isotherm both in Mexico and in Argentina and Chile, and more than 90 per cent of which is committed directly to homeostasis and to the cost of handling the food.
