Northern Long-Eared Bat Day-Roosting and Prescribed Fire in the Central Appalachians, USA
Pages: 13-27
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1202013

The northern long-eared bat (Myotis septentrionalis Trovessart) is a cavity-roosting species that forages in cluttered upland and riparian forests throughout the oak-dominated Appalachian and Central Hardwoods regions. Common prior to white-nose syndrome, the population of this bat species has declined to functional extirpation in some regions in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, including portions of the central Appalachians.  [Read More]

Fire Effects on Wildlife in the Central Hardwoods and Appalachian Regions, USA
Pages: 127-159
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1202127

However, questions persist as to how fire affects hardwood forest communities and associated wildlife, and how fire should be used to achieve management goals. We provide an up-to-date review of fire effects on various wildlife species and their habitat in the Central Hardwoods and Appalachians.  [Read More]
