Tent-making bats modify leaves to build refuges. Leaf modification involves energetic and defense costs that should be balanced by the benefits of tent-roosting. The alteration of the leaf’s vascular system reduces the tent’s life expectancy, so to obtain a benefit bats are expected to use tents regularly as long as they are functional and not modify more leaves than necessary. Over two years we documented the dynamics of tent construction and use by Uroderma convexum...
