Rangewide summertime model predictions for three bat species (Myotis lucifigus, Myotis septentrionalis, and Perimyotis subflavus) from acoustic and mist net data 2010 to 2019

September 20, 2021

False positive occupancy analysis predictions with model uncertainty based on summertime data provided to support the three bat species status assessment (SSA) for Myotis lucifigus (MYLU), Myotis septentrionalis (MYSE), and Perimyotis subflavus (PESU). The objectives outlined by the Fish and Wildlife Service?s SSA team were to estimate summertime distributions across the entire species range. Statistical analysis included five types of response data requested from the North American Bat Monitoring Program database (NABat): automatically identified stationary acoustic calls, manually vetted stationary acoustic calls, automatically identified mobile acoustic calls, manually vetted mobile acoustic calls, and capture records. Statistical analysis was for the summertime distribution modeling, data collected between June 1 and Sept 1 during 2010 until 2019 were only included.
