Variation in echolocation call frequencies in two species of free-tailed bats according to temperature and humidity
Bats can actively adjust their echolocation signals to specific habitats and tasks, yet it is not known if bats also modify their calls to decrease atmospheric attenuation. Here the authors test the hypothesis that individuals ...
Ecological Correlates of Range Size in the Tent-Making Bat Artibeus watsoni
We examined variation in foraging- and roosting-range size in the tent-making bat Artibeus watsoni. We radiotracked 42 individuals at 2 sites in the Golfito Wildlife Refuge and 6 sites at Corcovado National Park, southwestern ...
Ecological Correlates of Roost Fidelity in the Tent-Making Bat Artibeus watsoni
Roost switching is a common occurrence in bats, yet the causes and consequences of such behavior are poorly understood. In this study we explore the ecological correlates of roost fidelity in the tent‐making bat Artibeus ...
