Title: Habitat associations of bats in south-central West Virginia

Author: Schirmacher, Michael R.; Castleberry, Steven B.; Ford, W. Mark; Miller, Karl V.;

Date: 2007

Source: Proceedings of the Annual Conference of the southeastern association of fish and wildlife agendcies. 61: 46-52.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: We conducted acoustic surveys at National Park Service and state park properties in south-central West Virginia to create bat habitat association models across a large, topographically complex and relatively intact Appalachian Hardwood landscape representative of the Allegheny Plateau portion of the central Appalachians. We developed generalized and species-specific groups of a priori habitat association models to predict bat presence using various microhabitat and landscape features linked to body-size, wing morphology, food habits and echolocation call characteristics for seven species. Habitat associations for the species generally followed expectations based on previous research in the region.

Keywords: acoustical sampling, bat, foraging, central Appalachians, habitat model, West Virginia
