Abstract: This document is one in a series of technical notes concerning species that are potentially impacted by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) reservoir operations. These technical notes are products of the Corps Ecosystem Management and Restoration Research Program (EMRRP) work unit titled “Reservoir Operations – Impacts on Target Species” (Dickerson, Martin, and Allen 1999; Kasul, Martin, and Allen 2000). This note provides information on six species of forest bats that roost in caves or cave-like structures (Figure 1) and potentially occur on Corps projects in the eastern United States. The status of each species is given and information is provided on the impacts responsible for population declines. General habitat requirements and management needs are described for this group of bats. More specific details on status, distribution, habitat, behavior, reproduction, food habits, impacts, and management are provided in separate technical notes on individual species (ERDC Technical Notes EMRRP-SI-25 through EMRRP-SI-27 and EMRRP-SI-29). Links to these additional technical notes can be found on page 8.
