bat ectoparasites from the trans-pecos region of texas, including notes from big bend national park.ectoparasites of 13 species of molossid, mormoopid, and vespertilionid bats from the trans-pecos region of texas were studied, as follows: antrozous pallidus (leconte), corynorhinus townsendii (cooper), eptesicus fuscus (palisot de beauvois), lasiurus cinereus (palisot de beauvois), mormoops megalophylla (peters), myotis thysanodes g. s. miller, myotis velifer (j. a. allen), myotis volans (h. allen), myotis yumanensis (h. allen), nyctinomops femorosaccus (merriam), nyctinomops macrotis (gray), p ...200111372965
a review of bat hibernacula across the western united states: implications for white-nose syndrome surveillance and management.efforts to conserve bats in the western united states have long been impeded by a lack of information on their winter whereabouts, particularly bats in the genus myotis. the recent arrival of white-nose syndrome in western north america has increased the urgency to characterize winter roost habitats in this region. we compiled 4,549 winter bat survey records from 2,888 unique structures across 11 western states. myotis bats were reported from 18.5% of structures with 95% of aggregations composed ...201830379854
streptomyces corynorhini sp. nov., isolated from townsend's big-eared bats (corynorhinus townsendii).four bacterial strains, with the capability of inhibiting pseudogymnoascus destructans, the causative agent of white-nose syndrome, were isolated from male townsend's big-eared bats (corynorhinus townsendii, family: vespertilionidae) in new mexico. isolates ac161, ac162, ac208, and ac230t were characterised as a novel clade using morphological, phenotypic and phylogenetic analysis. a draft genome of the type strain was completed to determine its taxonomy and secondary metabolite biosynthetic pot ...201930993571
winter habitats of bats in texas.few studies have described winter microclimate selection by bats in the southern united states. this is of particular importance as the cold-adapted fungus, pseudogymnoascus destructans, which causes the fatal bat disease white-nose syndrome (wns), continues to spread into southern united states. to better understand the suitability of winter bat habitats for the growth of p. destructans in this region, we collected roost temperature and vapor pressure deficit from 97 hibernacula in six ecoregio ...201931393965
winter ecology of ectoparasites collected from hibernating myotis velifer (allen) in southwestern oklahoma (chiroptera: vespertilionidae.during the winter of 1971-72, trichobius major, t, corynorhini, mydopsylla collinsi, macronyssus crosbyi, m. unidens, paraspinturnix globosus, spinturnix carloshoffmani, ornithodoros sp., albeckia senase, nycteriglyphus sp. a, and olabidocarpus sp. were quantitatively collected from hibernating myotis velifer, plecotus townsendii, and pipistrellus subflavus. significantly greater numbers of s. carloshoffmani and m. crosbyi were found on female m. velifer, while greater numbers of p. globosus wer ...1976957042
long-term bat abundance in sagebrush steppe.bats of western north america face many threats, but little is known about current population changes in these mammals. we compiled 283 surveys from 49 hibernacula over 32 years to investigate population changes of townsend's big-eared bats (corynorhinus townsendii townsendii) and western small-footed myotis (myotis ciliolabrum) in idaho, usa. this area comprises some of the best bat habitat in the western usa, but is threatened by land-use change. bats in this area also face invasion by the pat ...201830115979
eight polymorphic microsatellite loci developed and characterized from townsend's big-eared bat, corynorhinus townsendii.two of the five subspecies of the western big-eared bat, corynorhinus townsendii, are listed as federally endangered with the remaining three being of conservation concern. knowing the degree of connectivity among populations would aid in the establishment of sound conservation and management plans for this taxon. for this purpose, we have developed and characterized eight polymorphic microsatellite markers.200921564620
detection, prevalence and phylogenetic relationships of demodex spp and further skin prostigmata mites (acari, arachnida) in wild and domestic mammals.this study was conceived to detect skin mites in social mammals through real-time qpcr, and to estimate taxonomic demodex and further prostigmata mite relationships in different host species by comparing sequences from two genes: mitochondrial 16s rrna and nuclear 18s rrna. we determined the mite prevalence in the hair follicles of marmots (13%) and bats (17%). the high prevalence found in marmots and bats by sampling only one site on the body may indicate that mites are common inhabitants of th ...201627802314
ectoparasites associated to two species of corynorhinus (chiroptera: vespertilionidae) from the guanaceví mining region, durango, a part of an inventory of bats in abandoned mines at the municipality of guanaceví, durango, mexico, a sample of long-eared bats (genus corynorhinus) was collected and ectoparasites were taken. twenty-three specimens of corynorhinus mexicanus allen, 1916, and 18 of corynorhinus townsendii (cooper, 1937) were collected in four sampling periods coincident with the seasons. in total, 98 ectoparasites of 10 species and seven families were examined. five species are recorded for the first time on ...200515799520
