Key habitat factors for the distribution of the forest-dwelling Bechstein’s bat in Luxembourg: GIS based modelling of minimum habitat requirements

Bechstein

Forests are the main habitat for most of the bat species but the understanding of the tight association of bats and their ecosystem is still low. Threats through deforestation, fragmentation and changes in management structures demand analysis of habitat requirements and habitat use of bats in greater depth to develop and take effective conservation measures...

Inventory of forest bats in Luxembourg

myotis

This 6-year-project aims to investigate the occurrence, distribution and population density of bat species depending on forests. Altogether 10 forests were chosen, distributed over the major natural regions in Luxembourg. The main methods used are determinations by bat detectors as well as mist-netting. Lactating females of selected species were radio-tagged in order to find their.. Lire la suite
