In this summary we report on a 2-year study to examine the roost-site preferences of the northern long-eared myotis (Myotis septentrionalis), a provincially Blue-listed species. The specific objectives were: to characterize roosting habitat used by bats, with emphasis on northern long-eared bat females; to compare attributes of confirmed roost sites with potential roosts at the patch and stand levels to determine the criteria used for roost selection; and to provide specific recommendations as to how bat roosting habitat requirements can be incorporated into forest development plans and wildlife tree patch design.
