Abstract: This technical note is a product of the Ecosystem Management and Restoration Research Program (EMRRP) work unit titled “Natural Resource Inventories for Special Status Species on Corps Operating Projects.” The objective of this note is to provide information on methods for conducting inventories of bat species to satisfy the requirements of Level II Natural Resources Inventories for Corps of Engineers operating projects. Survey methods for other mammalian orders are provided in Martin (2009). A variety of techniques for conducting bat surveys are described, with emphasis on broad-based methods that can be used to obtain occurrence/non-occurrence data for multiple species within a community (Martin et al. 2006). Step-by-step procedures are provided for conducting mist-net surveys, acoustic surveys, roost searches, hibernacula surveys, and emergence counts. General information is also provided for specialized techniques such as radio telemetry, thermal infrared imagery, and collection of material for genetic analysis.
