Life History Notes: Little Brown Bat Myotis lucifugus (PDF version available for download) Introduction-Because they are active at night, bats are a mystery to most people. Although we don’t often see them, bats are very important to the environment, agriculture, science, and in some instances to the economy. (ii) If the little brown bat species does not become extinct and can potentially recover, the rate of recovery is likely to be slow. Discuss one aspect of bat biology that might slow the recovery of little brown bat populations to pre-WNS numbers. (1 point for a correct discussion of a correct aspect of bat biology that might slow their recovery).

Overview Overview. Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus) is a Threatened species in dorsal fur is a glossy dark-brown to olive-brown color with a lighter ventral side. The little brown bat is insectivorous and feeds on aquatic soft-bodied insects and is found roosting in warm microclimates provided by tree snags, bat houses, and buildings during the summer.

During this interval, many bats occupy roosts that are used exclusively at night and are spatially separate from maternity roosts. The proportion of the night which bats spend roosting, and thus the proportion spent foraging, vary both daily and seasonally Cited by:.
