    In temperate ecosystems, hibernation allows bats to survive long periods of limited prey and water availability during colder months. Despite the extended amount of time some bats spend in hibernation, researchers have only recently been able to study the hibernation ecology of bats under...

  • Bats and White-Nose Syndrome Still a Conundrum. COHN, JEFFREY P. // BioScience;Apr2012, Vol. 62 Issue 4, p444 

    The article discusses the prevalence of white-nose syndrome (WNS) caused by the white fungus, Geomyces destructans, in North American bats. The author notes that WNS, which grows on the muzzles, wings, and exposed skin of infected bats, has confounded biologists investigating the cause of WNS....

    Background: We address three key gaps in research on urban wildlife ecology: insufficient attention to (1) grassland biomes, (2) individual- and population-level effects, and (3) vertebrates other than birds. We hypothesized that urbanization in the North American Prairies, by increasing habitat...
