BAT SURVEY - first patrol finished 10.4.2014
During a month in the field, Peter Amick with his assistants mist-netted more than 490 bat individuals of 11 bat species at eight study sites. We faced some problems with our bright new EchoMeter EM3+ so the vocalization is recorded only at 4 study sites till now, and seems to reveal another 5 species. Observed species richness seems to decrease with elevation while abundance doesn't seem to decrease across the most of the gradient. We are really looking forward to our next field trip in June.
