There were 0.06 more bat calls/min collected in the riparian vegetational association ([bar.x] = 0.12, n = 36) than in the desert vegetational association ([bar.x] = 0.06, n = 36) at Montezuma Well unit ([t.sub.70] = 3.32, P = 0.002, 95% CI = 0.03-0.10).
We captured one additional species at Montezuma Castle unit, one at Montezuma Well Unit, and three at Tonto National Monument that were not documented by acoustic monitoring at mist-nets or in vegetational associations.
At Montezuma Castle Unit and Montezuma Well Unit, we set nets in areas we could navigate safely, and the only permanent source of water at Tonto National Monument was a small spring lined by dense riparian vegetation that limited mist-netting opportunities.
