Occurrence of Bats in Highly Impacted Environments: The Lake Tahoe Basin
Authors: M. L. Morrison, J. Groce, K. L. Borgmann
As part of a wildlife monitoring program in the Basin, we report on the occurrence of bats to (1) begin development of baseline data for use in post-restoration monitoring; (2) determine the current status of bats relative to historic records; and (3) provide guidance to agency planners for development of restoration plans aimed at enhancing wildlife habitat. Evaluation of historic records, when combined with recent surveys, allows for development of a list of species that should occur at each project site that will likely require special management efforts to ensure their occurrence and productivity
