Abstract: Gandl Kin, Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) supports an unusual maternal colony of Keens long-eared myotis and little brown myotis. Hot water from geothermal springs flow through crevices and under boulders creating warm, moist conditions for roosting bats. Some boulder roosts are unique in that they are in the upper intertidal zone and are periodically flooded by extreme tides. The pattern of seasonal use strongly suggests that the thermally heated roosts are important during pregnancy and lactation, but the bats roost elsewhere once the young are volant. Emergence counts confirmed that at least 110 adult bats used the Gandl Kin roosts during 1998, which is similar to the 140 adults and young estimated in 1991. The 2 species were present in approximately equal numbers in both 1991 and 1998, which suggests they are coexisting with minimal competition. Roost sites do not appear to be limiting, and the preliminary results of feces analysis suggest that different foraging behaviour may be minimizing...
