The chiropteran fauna in hibernacula in Karelia is chiefly made up of widespread sedentary boreal species – the northern bat Eptesicus nilssonii (Keyserling & Blasius, 1839), Brandt’s bat Myotis brandtii (Eversmann, 1845) and brown long-eared bat Plecotus auritus (Linnaeus, 1758). The Daubenton’s bat M. daubentonii (Kuhl, 1817) and especially the whiskered bat M. mystacinus (Kuhl, 1817) are far more rare, and wintering of the pond bat M. dasycneme (Boie, 1825) and the Natterer’s bat M… 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
Hematological Parameters in Hibernating Eptesicus nilssonii (Mammalia: Chiroptera) Collected in Northern European Russia
TLDR
Hibernating E. nilssonii were found to have a low total WBC count similar to other hibernators; no significant variation was noted during hibernation, and differential leukocyte count showed a significant reduction in total monocytes in winter. Expand

Characteristics of winter roosts of bat species in southern Finland
Abstract We determined the characteristics of hibernation locations of the northern bat Eptesicus nilssonii, Brandt's bat Myotis brandtii/whiskered bat Myotis mystacinus, Daubenton's bat MyotisExpand
Seasonal variation in use of winter roosts by five bat species in south-east Finland
TLDR
Seasonal variation in the use of winter roosts by five bat species in south-east Finland during the winters of 2003/2004 and 2004/2005 is studied to suggest that bats tend to use different strategies throughout the hibernation season, minimizing the cost of hibernation early in the season by hibernating in warmer locations and minimizing energy expenditure later in the year by hiberNating in colder locations.

Sex and Age Related Habitat Selection and Mass Dynamics of Daubenton's Bats Myotis daubentonii (Kuhl, 1817) Hibernating in Natural Conditions
TLDR
The significant relationship between body mass at the beginning and end of hibernation (November and March) of uniquely marked individuals indicates these bats did not forage in winter and their energy use was exclusively dependent on fat reserves accumulated prior to hibernation. Expand
Environmental correlates of species richness of European bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera)
TLDR
Three environmental characteristics (latitude, area and temperature) are the main predictors of bat species richness in Europe, and additive models constructed in this way allow for a ranking of countries with respect to species richness. Expand
RELATION BETWEEN CLIMATE AND BAT FAUNA IN EUROPE
From northern Africa to northern Scandinavian Peninsula there are several climatic areas: Mediterranean, temperate, continental, hemiboreal, milder. A certain structure and abundance of theExpand
Body Temperature during Hibernation Is Highly Correlated with a Decrease in Circulating Innate Immune Cells in the Brown Bear (Ursus arctos): A Common Feature among Hibernators?
TLDR
Across species comparison suggests that, both in small and large hibernators, Tb is the main driver of immune function regulation during winter dormancy, and the lack of a difference in lymphocyte counts in this context requires further investigations. Expand
Up-regulation of fatty acid-binding proteins during hibernation in the little brown bat, Myotis lucifugus.
TLDR
Altered gene and protein expression along with amino acid substitutions likely contribute to optimizing the function of FABPs at the low body temperatures experienced in the hibernating state in mammals. Expand
Hibernation versus Daily Torpor in Mammals and Birds: Physiological Variables and Classification of Torpor Patterns
TLDR
Comparisons of several physiological variables appear to justify a distinction between the two torpor patterns, but of all variables tested, only the frequency distributions of maximum torpor bout duration and the minimum V̇o2 showed a clear gap between daily heterotherms and hibernators. Expand
Muscle plasticity in hibernating ground squirrels (Spermophilus lateralis) is induced by seasonal, but not low-temperature, mechanisms
TLDR
The collective findings most strongly support early, seasonal, phenotype changes in skeletal muscles which are not uniquely confined to, or prompted by, torpor at 4°C. Expand

TLDR
New studies with both adult T. scripta elegans and hatchling C. picta marginata have identified prominent groups of genes that are up-regulated under anoxia in turtle organs, in several cases suggesting aspects of cell function and metabolic regulation that have not previously been associated with anaerobiosis.
