Bats:
Our bat research on Kirtland is conducted by Travis Perry, Kate Thibault, and Nancy Cox and involves a diversity survey of bat species using the base, an artificial roost study to determine if bats need/will use artificial roosts on base and if so, what is the best temperature regime for those roosts.  Finally, we are concentrating our radio tracking efforts on finding maternity roosts for the Southwestern Myotis (the bat in the photo) as very little is known about that bat with a small and restricted geographic home range.
