Determination of Range and Habitat Use for Federally Endangered Bat Species in Georgia

The overall goal of the study is to conduct large-scale surveys to document the distribution and habitat associations of cave-roosting/hibernating bats (species susceptible to White Nose Syndrome) in north Georgia. The specific objectives are to 1) delineate distributions of cave-roosting/hibernating bats, 2) determine landscape-level factors that influence cave-roosting/hibernating bat distributions, and 3) develop landscape-scale habitat models to predict cave-roosting/hibernating bat presence across the study area.
