perspicillata bats, a colonial species that can cohabitate with different species of chiropterans
Eco-status and demographic changes among chiropterans
of the Thar Desert with special reference to Jodhpur.
The facts demonstrated the importance of these animals in the assemblage of chiropterans
in the region.
We also recorded other nocturnal animals such as Coyote (Canis latrans), Gray Fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus), chiropterans
, and anurans.
Studies reporting the species richness and fauna of chiropterans
in forest fragments were undertaken in the Parana State by Reis & Muller (1995), Reis et al.
are easily found in forests and present wide diversity regarding ecological aspects, as selection of diet, shelter and habitat and they have been considered as important environmental indicators of altered areas (Fenton et al., 1992; Medellin et al., 2000; Peters et al., 2006).
The input from 84 contributors to this revised text (as compared to 35 in the original) and the addition of co-editor Stuart Parsons makes Kunz's text an impressive collection of contemporary knowledge about chiropterans
However, these works represent a scarce body of information, in view of the as yet unstudied diversity of Neotropical chiropterans
Kartono 2003 Diversity, relative abundance, and conservation of chiropterans
in Kayan Mentarang National Park, East Kalimantan, Indonesia.
There are 12 species of insectivores; 34 species of chiropterans
(bats); 17 species of primates; 3 species of pholidotes (pangolins); 34 species of tubulidentates (aardvarks), proboscideans (elephants) and hydrochoerids; and 12 species of artiodactyls (ungulates such as camel or pig); including 2 species of rodent and 3 species of insectivore that were first described in the 1960s.
Remains of eight orders of land mammals, including insectivores, chiropterans
, a lagomorph, a large carnivore, rodents, horses, a prosynthetocerine, and a gomphothere, have been recovered.
