Even though bats represent a relatively abundant, biologically fascinating and highly beneficial component of Wisconsin's wildlife, they remain poorly studied and greatly misunderstood. Accounts of the seasonal adaptive strategies of most bats are inadequate or fragmentary (Barbour and Davis 1969). Rarely have researchers investigated more than one species at a single time and place. The aim of this study was to make simultaneous comparisons by sex and species of the various adaptive strategies employed by members of the Neda Mine bat community on an annual basis.
