  • Uroderma convexum construct and occupy tents. Tents serve as day shelters and reproductive sites, but also frequently are used as night feeding roosts. We observed and radio-tagged U. convexum occupying tents at Sarapiqui, Costa Rica. Social groups of U. convexum were composed of one adult male, reproductive females, and immature bats apparently forming a polygynous harem organization. We report spatial information (core-use, foraging range, habitat coverage use) and seed dispersal behavior for… CONTINUE READING
