Sampling comments: "Bats were sampled by use of up to seven mist nets, each having four panels and with areas ranging from 6.0 m 2.7 m to 12.0 m 3.6 m. Two harp traps, each with an effective trap area of 2.5 m2 were also used... Sampling at the seven netting sites amounted to 22 400 m 2 mist net hours during 26 nights plus 227 m2 harp trap hours during eight nights"
