The Importance of Landscape Elements for Bat Activity and Species Richness in Agricultural Areas

The Importance of Landscape Elements for Bat Activity and Species Richness in Agricultural Areas | Bat Biology and Ecology | Scoop.it
Landscape heterogeneity is regarded as a key factor for maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem function in production landscapes. We investigated whether grassland sites at close vicinity to forested areas are more frequently used by bats. Considering that bats are important consumers of herbivorous insects, including agricultural pest, this is important for sustainable land management. Bat activity and species richness were assessed using repeated monitoring from May to September in 2010 with
