Flight performance, echolocation and foraging behaviour in noctule bats Nyctalus noctula.
Although this research study is the second to demonstrate the bat's presence in the Iberian Peninsula, it offers the first description in the fossil record of the teeth of Nyctalus lasiopterus from a fragment of the left jaw.
In fact, the discovery of Nyctalus lasiopterus at the Abric Romani site (Capellades, Barcelona) is one of the few cases of fossils existing on the species in the European Pleistocene," said Juan Manuel Lopez-Garcia, principal author of the work and researcher at the Institute of Social Evolution and Human Palaeoecology at the Rovira i Virgili University (URV).
For comparison, respirometric data were also obtained from Nyctalus noctula, a hibernating vespertilionid bat of similar body size and convergent foraging habits.
The biggest bat in Europe, the greater noctule, or Nyctalus lasiopterus, eats many birds during the spring and fall migrations, says Javier Juste of Donana Biological Station in Seville.

Objectives: The aims of the project are: To secure the populations of the Italian crested newt (Triturus carnifex), the smooth newt (Triturus vulgaris), the Italian tree frog (Hyla intermedia), and Hermann s tortoise (Testudo hermanni) with the release (from a temporary breeding centre) of tadpoles and juvenile individuals in the Natura 2000 network site Monte Calvo-Piana di Montenero; and To guarantee the survival of the populations of 12 bat species (Myotis myotis, Myotis blythii, Myotis capaccinii, Miniopterus schreibersii, Rhinolophus euryale, Rhinolophus hipposideros, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum, Eptesicus serotinus, Pipistrellus kuhlii, Nyctalus noctula, Hypsugo savii and Tadarida teniotis).
