Latest Indiana bat Stories
Depending on habitat availability, the endangered Indiana bat may be able to use its social connections to survive a certain amount of roost destruction
For years, researchers have been using acoustic monitoring technology to assess the bat population in specific areas. Researchers conducting a new study around Form Drum in upstate New York have now developed a refined method on this non-invasive sampling technique.

According to a new report, biologists have identified several benign relatives of the fungus responsible for White Nose Syndrome, which has decimated American bat populations in recent years.
Research by U.S. Forest Service scientists forecasts profound changes over the next 50 years in the summer range of the endangered Indiana bat.
Researchers are identifying the important ecological and economic contributions of bats; gleaning lessons from incredible bat abilities that may advance technology; and helping to battle a new fatal bat epidemic
An artificial cave, designed to help protect bats from a fungal ailment that to date has killed more than six million of the creatures throughout North America, has been constructed by conservationists in the woods of Tennessee.
New studies conducted by biologists at University of California, Santa Cruz show that the effects of white-nose syndrome, a deadly bat disease, may be worse in bat colonies who are increasingly social during hibernation.
A groundbreaking method of tracking the little brown bat by using stable hydrogen isotopes, a chemical “fingerprint” found in organic matter like hair, could help researchers understand white-nose syndrome better.
Recently, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) verified the first cases of white-nose syndrome within colonies of the endangered gray bat (Myotis grisecens) located in Montgomery and Hawkins counties of Tennessee.
The Indiana bat (Myotis sodalist) is a mouse-eared bat that can be found in North America. Its range primarily includes eastern and Midwestern states, but it can be found in some southern areas of the United States. During the winter, its range becomes much smaller, with most populations occurring in large clusters in only a few caves. One study conducted in 1985 suggested that an estimated 244,000 individuals of this species reside in Indiana. Its range overlaps that of the endangered gray...
The little brown bat (Myotis lucifugus) is also known as the little brown myotis. It is a species in the Myotis genus, or mouse-eared bats. It is one of the most common North American bats, and is a good species to use when studying bats. This species has been included in the Mammalian Genome Project. The range of this bat includes the northern half of the United States and southern Canada. More males than females have been found in the northern range of the little brown bat, but there has...
The Gray Bat (Myotis grisescens), is a small bat that lives in caves throughout the southern United States. It usually chooses caves which are located within one mile of a river or reservoir. The range of the endangered gray bat is concentrated in the cave regions of Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama, with occasional colonies and individuals found in adjacent states. The species' present total population is estimated to number over 1,500,000. The gray bat's range overlaps...
