Data from: Global patterns of functional trait variation along aridity gradients in bats

Irene Conenna, Luca Santini, Ricardo Rocha, Ara Monadjem, Mar Cabeza & Danilo Russo
Aim: Our understanding of the biological strategies employed by species to cope with challenges posed by aridity is still limited. Despite being sensitive to water loss, bats successfully inhabit a wide range of arid lands. We here investigated how functional traits of bat assemblages vary along the global aridity gradient to identify traits that favour their persistence in arid environments. Methods: We mapped the assemblage-level averages of four key bat traits describing wing morphology, echolocation...
