These bat location estimates have been reported by Bogan and others (In press) and come in the form of a GIS shape file. Three species of nectar-feeding phyllostomid bats migrate north from Mexico into deserts of the United States (U.S.) each spring and summer to feed on blooms of columnar cacti and century plants (Agave spp). However, the habitat needs of these important desert pollinators are poorly understood. We followed the nighttime movements of two species of long-nosed bats (Leptonycteris yerbabuenae and L. nivalis) in an area of late-summer sympatry at the northern edges of their migratory ranges. We radiotracked bats in extreme southwestern New Mexico during 22 nights over two summers and acquired location...
This Species Conservation Assessment was prepared as part of a Species Conservation Project funded by the Wyoming Bureau of Land Management. It represents a complete review of the current published information available for the species, includes consultation with experts, and addresses as much as is known concerning the distribution, biology, ecological niche, and conservation planning being conducted for this species on a state and range-wide level. The reader will note a number of areas in which biological and ecological data are not well known for this species, and that distribution data are based on relatively few specimen and observation records. Systematic surveys of suitable habitat for Euderma...

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact
