We assessed injuries to the forearms of 17 species of microchiropteran bats marked for ecological stud- ies and banded under the auspices of the Australian Bird & Bat Banding Scheme. Serious injuries were recorded in 16 of the 17 species, but injury rates varied between species according to band type, band size and metal type. Sur- vival estimates were calculated for three species. In Nyctophilus geoffroyi mean annual survival was significantly lower for animals marked with bat bands that… Expand
Effects of forearm bands on horseshoe bats (Chiroptera: Rhinolophidae)
TLDR
It is suggested that banding of horseshoe bats should be limited to well defined projects and only used if the study populations are in a good preservation condition and long term effects of the marking method can be monitored. Expand
Aspects of ecomorphology in the five European horseshoe bats (Chiroptera: Rhinolophidae) in the area of sympatry
Ageing and the assessment of the reproductive condition is an important prerequisite for many ecological studies. We studied metrical and qualitative changes of characters related to age andExpand
Population dynamics of the bat Dermanura tolteca (Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae) in a tropical forest in Mexico.
TLDR
The reproductive pattern was bimodal polyestrous, with birth periods between August-September and April-June, and greater body mass was observed in females than males, and the male-female ratio and age-related demographics were similar to other nose-leaf bats. Expand
Roosting and social ecology of the tricolored bat, Perimyotis subflavus, in Nova Scotia
TLDR
To describe the basic social structure of tricolored bats, particularly females, in Nova Scotia, roosted exclusively in Usnea lichen, near water, with access to many potentially available roost sites in stands of mostly softwood trees. Expand
ANESTHESIA AND BLOOD SAMPLING OF WILD BIG BROWN BATS (EPTESICUS FUSCUS) WITH AN ASSESSMENT OF IMPACTS ON SURVIVAL
TLDR
Comparisons of 14-day maximum-likelihood daily survival estimates indicated no adverse effect from anesthesia and blood sampling did not measurably affect survival of adult female and volant juvenile big brown bats. Expand

Leg problems and banding-associated leg injuries in a closely monitored population of North Island robin (Petroica longipes)
TLDR
It is believed that this previously undescribed toe entrapment is made possible because of the robin’s sideways perching behaviour on upright vegetation, highlighting that relationships between leg banding and injury may be species-specific and that the impacts of banding should be identified and quantified in all species in which it is used. Expand
A review of the effects of different marking and tagging techniques on marine mammals
TLDR
It is recommended that studies using marked animals standardise their reports, with added detail on methodology, monitoring and sampling design, and address practices used to minimise the impact of marking on marine mammals. Expand
Wound Healing in the Flight Membranes of Big Brown Bats
TLDR
Examination of data indicates that tissue biopsy for molecular analyses in bats should be taken from the tail membrane, although biopsies of the wing membrane are useful for marking associated with recapture programs because the wound and scar will persist longer. Expand
Bee Markers: A Novel Method for Non-Invasive Short Term Marking of Bats
TLDR
It is concluded that bee markers are an effective, cheap and less invasive approach for short term monitoring of bat populations and will also be useful to monitor whether recovery rates warrant the use of more invasive marking techniques. Expand

Effects of bat-bands and banding on a population of Pipistrellus nanus (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) in Malawi
TLDR
It is recommended that flanged bat-bands should be fitted as loosely as possible, that new bat-banders should be trained by experienced banders, and that banding of bats is permitted only when there are very good scientific reasons for the banding and when harm to individual bats and populations is likely to be minimal.

The Use of Bird Bands on Bats
TLDR
In view of the large numbers of bats now being banded and the importance of the work to public health because of the rabies factor, it seems appropriate to consider the wisdom of continuing the use of ordinary bird bands on bats. Expand
Survival and Longevity of the Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus) in Southeastern Ontario
Survival and longevity in a hibernating population of Myotis lucifugus were studied for 35 years with mark-recapture techniques. Two males were recaptured 29 and 30 years after being banded; theseExpand

TLDR
It is indicated that few if any details of growth and survival are constant over time, even for individual colonies within a single species. Expand
A preliminary evaluation of the performance of passive integrated transponders and metal tags in a population study of the flatback sea turtle (Natator depressus)
TLDR
Marking of nesting female Natator depressus with passive integrated transponders (PITs) at the major eastern Australian rookery of Wild Duck I was initiated in 1989 and loss of metal tags was variable between metals and tagging positions. Expand

TLDR
Jolly (1965), tackling this problem from a different viewpoint, gives a very elegant solution to the problem of finding maximumlikelihood estimates of the unknown population parameters and gives the means and variances of these estimates. Expand
Constant-parameter capture-recapture models.
TLDR
Modifications of the Jolly-Seber model for capture-recapture data, which assume constant survival and/or capture rates, are presented and how to carry out goodness-of-fit tests which utilize individual capture history information is indicated. Expand
