Stable isotope analysis of Indiana Bat hair

Grants and Contracts Details


By analyzing hair samples from hibernating Indiana Bats, investigators can determine summer foraging ranges. This has implications for management decisions regarding the transmission and spread of white-nose syndrome. Appropriately 200 Indiana Bat hair samples will be analyzed for their hydrogen, nitrogen and carbon isotope composition to identify summer catchment areas for Indiana Bats. These analyses will provide tools for wildlife managers to assess the overall importance of management actions/implications throughout the state of Kentucky.
