Threatened and Endangered Species

State, federal, and tribal lands are required to conserve and recover species listed as threatened or endangered – those with a high risk of extinction.

Yet, information on habitat requirements and population dynamics of many – particularly threatened or endangered bat species, is needed to prevent further declines and promote their recovery.

Scientists within the Upland Hardwood Ecology and Management Research Work Unit 4157, along with many collaborators and partners, study the ecology and conservation of two TES species: the endangered Indiana bat and the sensitive Rafinesque’s big-eared bat.
