Relating wing morphology and immune function to patterns of partial and differential bat migration using stable isotopes

Elizabeth J Rogers, Liam McGuire, Fred J Longstaffe, Jeff Clerc, Emma Kunkel & Erin Fraser
Migration is energetically expensive and is predicted to drive similar morphological adaptations and physiological trade-offs in migratory bats and birds. Previous studies suggest that fixed traits like wing morphology vary among species and individuals according to selective pressures on flight, while immune defenses can vary flexibly within individuals as energy is variably reallocated throughout the year. We assessed intraspecific variation in wing morphology and immune function in silver-haired bats (Lasionycteris noctivagans), a species that follows...
