Abstract

Big-eared bats (genus Corynorhinus) in the Eastern United States are species of special conservation concern. These species are at risk due to many factors, including lack of knowledge about their basic biology, population numbers or trends, and distribution. This volume contains five synthesis papers on the status, ecology, and conservation of eastern big-eared bats and nine papers that present new data on the status, roosting and foraging ecology, and methodology for inventorying bigeared bats in the Eastern United States. These papers were presented at a symposium held at the University of Georgia in March 2010.
