Sampling comments: "Bats were captured at eight sampling sites in SBR. At each sampling site, two mist nets (9.4 m long x 2.5 m high, 25 mm mesh size, 4 shelves) were set up at ground level (2.5 m high) and two more others were set up at a higher level (5 m high). Nets were... operated for six hours from 18.00 to 24.00 and checked every 30 minutes. Bats were captured from June 2013 to May 2014. The total trapping effort... was 81, 216 meter hours" and there were 9.4 x 2.5 x 4 x 6 = 564 meter hours per night, so there were 144 net nights and 36 nights
