..., since it only roosts in unlogged gullies and within them, only in trees of 80 cm diameter. Since hollows in eucalypt trees may take 100 years to form, a short logging rotation time of 20–40 years will have a detrimental effect upon many species of forest bats. From a forest bat conservation point...

...Bradley S. Law ABSTRACT Long-term research is vital for understanding long-lived, dynamic systems like forests, yet for bats such research is notable for its absence. Recent advances in technology over the last 10–20 years means that long-term studies of bats are viable and can be cost-effective. I...
