The endangered Ozark big-eared bat (Corynorhinus townsendii ingens) is restricted to eastern Oklahoma and western and north-central Arkansas, where populations may be susceptible to losses of genetic variation due to patchy distribution of colonies and potentially small effective population sizes. We used mitochondrial D-loop DNA sequences and 15 nuclear microsatellite loci to determine population connectivity among Ozark big-eared bat caves. Assessment of 7 caves revealed a haplotype not… 
Population structure of the Townsend's big-eared bat (Corynorhinus townsendii townsendii) in California
TLDR
The genetic structure and diversity of a group of maternity colonies across the Inyo-White Mountains in west-central California are investigated, suggesting maintaining the connection between colonies is a crucial step in the management and persistence of the subspecies.
Bat Hibernacula in Caves of Southern Idaho: Implications for Monitoring and Management
Abstract. Bat populations are being impacted by many threats, including white-nose syndrome, wind energy development, and hibernaculum disturbance and modification. Understanding the use of caves as
Genetic variability and connectivity of the Mexican long-nosed bat between two distant roosts
Genetic variability generally is associated with adaptive potential of species and can be assessed using microsatellite markers. Mexican long-nosed bats (Leptonycteris nivalis) are endangered,
Maternity Roosts of Townsend's Big-Eared Bats in Lava Tube Caves of Southern Idaho
Abstract Bats are being impacted by many threats (e.g., human disturbance of maternity roost sites and white-nose syndrome). Bat maternity roosts are a limited resource, and bats exhibit strong
Check List
Towards evidence-based conservation of subterranean ecosystems.
Subterranean ecosystems are among the most widespread environments on Earth, yet we still have poor knowledge of their biodiversity. To raise awareness of subterranean ecosystems, the essential

UNRAVELING THE EFFECTS OF SEX AND DISPERSAL: OZARK BIG-EARED BAT (CORYNORHINUS TOWNSENDII INGENS) CONSERVATION GENETICS
TLDR
A greater understanding of the population dynamics of Ozark big-eared bats is provided and the importance of cave protection relative to maintaining genetic integrity during recovery activities for this listed species is highlighted.
Subspecific Affinities and Conservation Genetics of Western Big-eared Bats (Corynorhinus townsendii pallescens) at the Edge of Their Distributional Range
TLDR
It is indicated that western big-eared bats at the periphery of the distribution in western Oklahoma share phylogenetic affinities with the most geographically restricted subspecies, C. t.
Conservation Status of the Endangered Ozark Big-eared Bat (Corynorhinus townsendii ingens) - a 34-year Assessment
Direct counts of Ozark big-eared bat (Corynorhinus townsendii ingens) in hibernacula and maternity roosts were analyzed from 1977 to 2010. We compiled data from 1,330 survey events at 268 sites: 77
Internal Cave Gating as a Means of Protecting Cave-Dwelling Bat Populations in Eastern Oklahoma
TLDR
The gray bat and the Ozark big-eared bat are both obligate, year-round cave-dwelling bats that are of particular interest in Oklahoma and are federally listed as endangered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
PREHIBERNATION HABITAT USE AND FORAGING ACTIVITY BY ENDANGERED OZARK BIG-EARED BATS (PLECOTUS TOWNSENDII INGENS)
TLDR
The results suggest that recovery efforts that include habitat conservation should focus on areas within a radius of 8 km from caves used by P t.
Population genetic structure and gene flow in a gleaning bat, Plecotus auritus
TLDR
It is concluded that gene flow occurs via extra–colony copulation, rather than natal dispersal, and that each colony behaves as a distinct subpopulation, suggesting that extensive macrogeographical population genetic structure may be evident across the species'range.
Outbreeding increases offspring survival in wild greater horseshoe bats (Rhinolophus ferrumequinum)
TLDR
The extent to which an individual is outbred may determine survival more than widely used phenotypic characteristics such as size and mass, and mean d2 may reflect immunocompetence, which influences mortality.
IMPORTANCE OF TRIBUTARY STREAMS FOR RAINBOW TROUT REPRODUCTION: INSIGHTS FROM A SMALL STREAM IN GEORGIA AND A BI‐GENOMIC APPROACH
TLDR
Analysis of DNA from seven mature male rainbow trout and four juveniles captured in Cabin Creek indicated that many more adults were spawning in this system than previously estimated with direct count methods and provided insight into rainbow trout spawning behavior.
Intraspecific comparison of population structure, genetic diversity, and dispersal among three subspecies of Townsend’s big-eared bats, Corynorhinus townsendii townsendii, C. t. pallescens, and the endangered C. t. virginianus
TLDR
Using a comparative approach, estimates of the genetic diversity within populations of the endangered subspecies, C. t.
Genetic structure in a swarming brown long-eared bat (Plecotus auritus) population: evidence for mating at swarming sites
TLDR
It is suggested that swarming is important for gene flow and for maintaining genetic diversity in this highly philopatric species and the identification and protection of swarming sites should be a major conservation priority for this and other temperate bat species.
