... over water, feeding predominantly on aquatic prey items and selecting roosts close (<500m) to permanent water. These traits are broadly representative of all trawling bats and reflect convergence of the group on common, specialised behaviours. Such convergence places trawling bats at risk of very...

... the value of specialised community and citizen-based groups as data collectors (Peters et al. 2015). Citizen groups may lack particular expertises but can be given selective training to assist with observation, data recording and storage. Specialist community groups, such as FATS, comprise people who...
