Bat migration routes in Europe
This project started in April 2021. Our goal is to identify spatial and temporal patterns of the presence of three common migrating bats (Pipistrellus nathusii, Nyctalus noctula and Nyctalus leisleri) using acoustic datasets. Hotspots in acoustic activity are expected to predict priority areas for the conservation of those migrating species. One of the aims of the project is to provide operational maps to guide wind energy planning.
