Abstract: Clayoquot Sound on the west coast of Vancouver Island, B.C. is an area of high-profile land-use conflict. In 1995, local scientific and management groups recognized bats as an important component of forest ecosystems. With almost no existing bat information for this area, we began studies of the bat community, with the goal of inventorying the bat community and identifying critical bat habitat at both landscape and stand levels. Identification of the important habitat will provide forest managers with guidelines that may minimize impacts of forest harvesting on bat populations. Over the 3 summers of field study we captured 6 species of bat: Myotis lucifugus, M. yumanensis, M. californicus, M. evotis, M. keenii, and Lasionycteris noctivagans. In addition, we confirmed the presence of Eptesicus fuscus through ultrasonic bat detection. From 1996 to 1998, Anabat II bat detectors were used to survey the relative flight and feeding activities of bat species in a variety of forest stands...
