Data from: Causes and consequences of living in closed societies: lessons from a long-term socio-genetic study on Bechstein's bats

Gerald Kerth & Jaap Van Schaik
Understanding the ecological, behavioural and genetic factors influencing animal social systems is crucial to investigating the evolution of sociality. Despite the recent advances in population genetic methods and the analysis of social interactions, long-term studies exploring the causes and consequences of social systems in wild mammals are rare. Here, we provide a synthesis of 15 years of data on the Bechstein’s bat (Myotis bechsteinii), a species that raises its young in closed societies of 10-45...
