The potential introduction of SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic, into North American bat populations is of interest to wildlife managers due to recent declines of several species. Populations of little brown bats (Myotis lucifugus) have collapsed due to white-nose syndrome (WNS), a disease caused by the introduction and spread of the fungal pathogen Pseudogymnoascus destructans (Pd). Throughout much of the United States and southern Canada, large colonies of the species routinely established diurnal roosts in anthropogenic structures creating the potential for direct human contact and cross-species disease transmission. Given recent declines and the potential for further disease impacts,...

This work is part of a study investigating the movement of microcystin from aquatic to terrestrial ecosystems via trophic transfer. Little brown bats (Myotis lucifugus), feeding opportunistically on aquatic insects including Hexagenia mayflies, were collected from a maternity roost near Little Traverse Lake (Leelanau County, Michigan, USA). Bats and fecal samples were collected for dietary analysis, quantification of microcystin in livers and feces, and histopathological evaluation of the liver. Liver was collected in RNAlater and stored frozen. Livers from three bats with the highest microcystin levels by ELISA were thawed, washed with PBS, fixed in 10% neutral buffered formalin, processed routinely for histopathology,...

The validity of Myotis occultus as a species unique from M. lucifugus has been a source of debate. Most recently, many authorities treat M. occultus as a distinct species, at least in part because a previous study showed that M. occultus and M. l. carissima (the subspecies that occurs in closest proximity to M. occultus) form separate monophyletic clades based on sequences of two mitochondrial genes (cytochrome-b [cytb] and cytochrome oxidase subunit II [COII]). We re-evaluated the phylogenetic relationship between M. occultus and M. lucifugus based on mitochondrial sequences using an expanded dataset of cytb and COII sequences that originated from more genetically diverse specimens of M. lucifugus collected across...

This data release contains the spatial raster outputs from analyses of summer roost site habitat for each of 4 species considered under the United States Forest Service proposed Bat Conservation Strategy (Myotis lucifugus, MYLU; Myotis septentrionalis, MYSE; Myotis sodalis, MYSO; and Perimyotis subflavus, PESU). The included raster data represent the mean suitability for summer roosting habitat for each of the four species (expressed as a numerical value from 0 to 1), the prediction interval (difference between the 5th and 95th confidence intervals), as well as the environmental covariates used to model habitat. All raster data are produced at a spatial resolution of 250 m per pixel. Summer roost site suitability...
