Effects of roost specialization on extinction risk in bats
Los Efectos de la Especializacion de Dormidero sobre el Riesgo de Extinción de Murciélagos
Understanding causes and consequences of ecological specialization is of major concern in conservation. Specialist species are particularly vulnerable to human activities. If their food or habitats are depleted or lost, ...
Sound amplification by means of a horn-like roosting structure in Spix's disc-winged bat
While sound is a signal modality widely used by many animals, it is very susceptible to attenuation, hampering effective long-distance communication. A strategy to minimize sound attenuation that has been historically used ...
Reproduction and Growth in a Neotropical Insectivorous Bat
Even though there is an abundance of data regarding the reproductive biology and postnatal growth of bats, comprehensive data on life history is still lacking for most species, particularly for rare families that have ...
Social communication in bats
Bats represent one of the most diverse mammalian orders, not only in terms of species numbers, but also in their ecology and life histories. Many species are known to use ephemeral and/or unpredictable resources that require ...
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 ...
Range overlap and association patterns in the tent-making bat Artibeus watsoni
Space use and ranging patterns of individuals have traditionally been used to identify social systems, and the amount of overlap in the home ranges of individuals can provide indirect information about the likelihood of ...
Reproductive biology and postnatal development in the tent-making bat Artibeus watsoni (Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae)
In this study we investigated the reproductive patterns and postnatal development in the tent‐making bat Artibeus watsoni. We sampled two populations in the Golfito Wildlife Refuge and Corcovado National Park, south‐western ...
