ectoparasitic mites (acari) of sympatric brazilian free-tailed bats and big brown bats in species of mites were recovered from 133 brazilian free-tailed bats, tadarida brasiliensis, and 94 big brown bats, eptesicus fuscus, from february through november 1990 in colonies that shared roosting space in east-central alabama. the macronyssid chiroptonyssus robustipes (ewing) was the most common mite on t. brasiliensis (964 mites, 87% of bats infested) and on e. fuscus (109 mites, 29% of bats infested). however, c. rubustipes normally is a specific parasite of t. brasiliensis. the ma ...19921625301
rabies in bats from on rabies virus infection in bats that were submitted to the alabama department of public health from 1995-2005 were analyzed. demographic factors, such as species and sex, and temporal aspects, such as yearly and monthly trends, were investigated. thirteen species of bats were submitted, and of those, individuals from seven species were rabid; prevalence was highest in lasiurus borealis and pipistrellus subflavus and lowest in eptesicus fuscus and nycticeius humeralis. there was no differe ...200717495316
macro- and microgeographic variation in metabolism and hormone correlates in big brown bats (eptesicus fuscus).to better understand intraspecific variation in basal metabolic rate (bmr), we examined environmental, physiological, and/or cellular bases for residual variation in bmr in big brown bats, eptesicus fuscus. we measured bmr and plasma levels of thyroid hormone (t(3)) and leptin in bats captured in maternity colonies in eastern massachusetts (ma; northern population) and in alabama and georgia (alga; southern population) to assess macrogeographic (between- or among-population) and microgeographic ...201319758093
