Abstract: This document is one in a series of technical notes produced by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) under the Ecosystem Management and Restoration Research Program (EMRRP). The technical notes identify sensitive species potentially impacted by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) reservoir operations and are products of the EMRRP work unit entitled “Reservoir Operations – Impacts on Habitats of Target Species” (Dickerson, Martin, and Allen 1999; Kasul, Martin, and Allen 2000). This document is one of a group of technical notes that provide information on selected bat species that have the potential to occur on Corps projects in the eastern United States and be impacted by Corps activities. It is linked to a technical note (ERDC TN-EMRRP-SI-24), which presents an overview of general habitat requirements, impacts, and management needs for these species. For management purposes, the endangered gray bat (Myotis grisescens) (Figure 1) is considered a riparian species because it may forage over water or in riparian zones surrounding streams and lakes on Corps lands during summer months. This technical note describes the distribution, legal status, ecology, potential impacts, and management guidelines for the gray bat.
