North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat) Mobile Acoustic Transect Surveys Standard Operating Procedure 2—Field Season and Survey Preparation
This document is the second of three standard operating procedures providing instructions and considerations for conducting mobile acoustic surveys along road transects to collect bat acoustic data following the North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat) protocol and sample design. This standard operating procedure focuses specifically on considerations for establishing the field survey season and preparing to conduct mobile acoustic transect surveys. Intended audiences for this document include those in charge of facilitating surveys within their region (for example, state or provincial mangers and NABat regional hub coordinators), project leaders or survey coordinators responsible for setting up and organizing NABat mobile transect monitoring for their organization or area, and field staff preparing to conduct surveys within the field.
