04-01-2012 - Ridley's leaf-nosed bat; Ridley's round-leafed bat
Ridleyâ€™s leaf-nosed bat is one of the most threatened bat species in Southeast Asia, reported from a few undisturbed forests on the Malay peninsula, Sumatra and Borneo. Throughout its range this bat is increasingly threatened by habitat loss. Our goal is to determine whether this species, and 45 other forest-dependent bats, can ultimately persist in forests degraded by logging and isolated by oil palm agriculture.
