Bat Community Monitoring 2002-2019

We compiled bat survey data from sampling sites throughout San Diego County in southern California from 2002-2019. Survey methods included ANABAT bat detectors, the unaided ear, day roost surveys and exit counts, and night roost surveys. All surveys were led by or included D. Stokes. Surveys were conducted with permission from private landowners and public land managers in areas where species were historically known or had the potential to occur based on habitat preferences. The study area in which surveys were conducted, San Diego County, spans a wide array of habitat types, including woodland, forest, coastal sage scrub, chaparral, and desert habitats, and apart from the desert, is generally characterized by a moderate Mediterranean climate. Elevation across San Diego County ranges from sea level along the coast to nearly 2,000 m in the mountains.
