Title: Roost use by two sympatric species of Scotophilus in a natural environment

Author: Monadjem, Ara; Raabe, Tara; Dickerson, Brian; Silvy, Nova; McCleery, Robert

Date: 2010

Source: South African Journal of Wildlife Research. 40(1): 73-76.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Roost use by African bats is poorly known, particularly for those using cavities in trees. Two sympatric species of Scotophilus were fitted with transmitters and tracked to their respective roosts in a natural savanna site in Swaziland. Both species roosted exclusively in trees, apparently preferring Combretum imberbe trees with large girths. The conservation of such roosting trees may be critical to the continued persistence of cavity-nesting insectivorous bats in African savannas.

Keywords: Scotophilus, roosts, Combretum imberbe, radio-tracking
