Sampling comments: "Bats were caught in harp traps placed on forestry tracks in regeneration (4 traps) and wet sclerophyll forest (2 traps). Field work was conducted on 10 consecutive nights each month at about the time of the new moon between August 1985 and July 1986... only the first 5 nights were used in the comparison of activity levels" that forms the basis of the counts
