Same-sex sexual behaviour in bats
This work reviewed the available observations on bat homosexual behaviour, presenting some behavioural hypotheses and concludes that same-sex sexual behaviours can be classified in 6 different groups and till now have been documented in 22 species of megabats and microbats. Expand
Social behaviour and vocalizations of the tent-roosting Honduran White Bat
This study entails an ethogram and describes the first vocal repertoire of a tent-roosting phyllostomid bat, providing the basis for further in-depth studies about the sociality and vocal communication in E. alba. Expand

The ethogram entails an ethogram and describes the social vocalizations of a tent-roosting phyllostomid bat, providing the basis for further in-depth studies about the sociality and vocal communication in E. alba. Expand
Do Bats Have the Necessary Prerequisites for Symbolic Communication?
This work highlights potential training paradigms that could be used to elicit simple “symbolic” bat-human communication, i.e., training bats to select arbitrary symbols on a touchscreen to elicit a desired behavior of the human caregiver. Expand
The Behaviour and Vocalisations of Captive Geoffroy's Horseshoe Bats, Rhinolophus clivosus (Chiroptera: Rhinolophidae)
Acoustic signals are important to the biology of animals, mediating crucial activities such as social interactions (communication) as well as orientation and foraging (echolocation). Many signalsExpand
Distribution and population status of Fruit-bat (Pteropus giganteus) in district Lakhimpur-Kheri, Uttar Pradesh, India
Pteropus giganteus commonly known as Indian flying fox, belongs to family pteropodidae of order megachiroptera (mammalian order). Family pteropodidae consists of 43 Genera and about 165 species whichExpand
From resource to female defence: the impact of roosting ecology on a bat's mating strategy
This work assesses proboscis bats' social dispersion and male mating strategy during day and night and reveals nocturnal male territoriality—a strategy which most closely resembles a resource-defence polygyny that is frequent also in other tropical bats. Expand
Seasonal variation in the reproductive tract of the Indian flying fox, Pteropus giganteus (Brünnich, 1782)
In flying foxes’ population of Pothwar, first mating was observed in December-January and second in June-July, suggesting two mating seasons in winter and summer. Expand
Cunnilingus Apparently Increases Duration of Copulation in the Indian Flying Fox, Pteropus giganteus
It appears that bats, especially pteropodids perform oral sex, either cunnilingus or fellatio, possibly for achieving longer copulation, as observed in a colony of the Indian flying fox. Expand


Vocal Communication in Australian Flying Foxes (Pteropodidae; Megachiroptera)
Spectrograph analyses of field and laboratory recordings of Pteropus poliocephalus are described and compared with some calls of Pt. gouldi and Pt. scapulatus. Mother‐young, agonistic, reproductive,Expand

In these, the selection of a mate, territoriality and conception occur, the young in contrast to the other species are not born in the large camps, but presumably in small groups when the species is dispersed throughout its range. Expand
Movements of Australian flying foxes (Pteropodidae: Megachiroptera).
Evidence is presented to show that the coastal species Pteropus poliocephalus and P. gouldi congregate in large camps from early until late summer and that the inland species P. scapulatus forms large camps in early summer but the young are born in autumn when the population is dispersed. Expand
An analysis of all available data shows that the Pteropidae tend to copulate while the days are growing shorter, so that the young are born in May. Expand
