FBN Research Projects

Research and Consulting is conducted for private and government organizations needing information on bat related issues. Scientific information on species diversity and populations is gathered during surveys using bat detectors (both hand-held and Anabat), mist nets / harp traps, radio-telemetry, visual surveys and a professionally scent trained ‘bat dog’. Data loggers (HOBO and Campbell) are used to monitor environmental parameters of known and experimental roost sites.

Several of our research projects are listed below (1990 – present) =
