..., little scientific research has been conducted on nest box usage in urban environments in Australia. The present study explored the use of bat boxes by insectivorous bats in urban Brisbane. Over the three-year study, bat box use in Brisbane increased steadily to over 80%. Five of the 22 hollow-using bat...
