Description

The objectives of this thesis were to determine eastern red bat (Lasiurus boeralis) and eastern pipistrelle (Pipistrellus subflavus) maternal roost use and selection at the tree, microhabitat, and macrohabitat scales. Additionally, used habitats were compared to those located in FFS treatment plots to make inferences on how these fuel reduction treatments may affect roosting behavior.
