The result indicated that in 2008 the total flying fox were 420 individuals and in 2009 were 563 individuals (160 juveniles, 218 adult females and 185 adult males); the natality and mortality rate in this location is 0.0214 and 0.0099 respectively.

The ecology and distribution of Flying Foxes (Chiroptera: Pteropodidae: Pteropus ) in Tanintharyi Region, Myanmar with a first mainland record of Pteropus hypomelanus geminorum from Myeik

Information was gathered from local people concerning the ecology and seasonal migration of Flying Fox colonies at the coastal village of Shaw-Taw-Maw and on the small island of The-byu and local threats to the bats and their habitat are presented.

Intensive hunting of large flying foxes Pteropus vampyrus natunae in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo

Abstract Pteropus vampyrus natunae, the Bornean subspecies of the large flying fox, has important roles in pollination but unsustainable hunting has been reported in Malaysian states. We provide the


In September 2002, the spatial distribution of a colony of Indian flying foxes in Peradeniya Botanical Gardens near Kandy, Sri Lanka, was assessed by counting the roosting bats on two consecutive

Pteropus vampyrus, a hunted migratory species with a multinational home‐range and a need for regional management

Summary 1. The management of migratory species is challenging because of insufficient data on long-range movement patterns, habitat use, and the impact of anthropogenic pressures (e.g. hunting)

Additional Data on the Os Penis of Megachiroptera

It is recognized that strong intrageneric similarities exist and representative bacula of various genera differ distinctly and an arrangement of specimens according to similarities of bacular structure agrees favorably with one based on traditional skeletal and external characteristics.
