Data from: Island bat diets: does it matter more who you are or where you live?

Jodi L. Sedlock, Frauke Krüger & Elizabeth L. Clare
Differences in body size, echolocation call frequency, and location may result in diet partitioning among bat species. Comparisons among island populations are one way to evaluate these competing hypotheses. We conducted a species-level diet analysis of three Rhinolophus and one Hipposideros species on the Philippine islands of Cebu, Bohol, and Siquijor. We identified 655 prey (MOTUs) in the guano from 77 individual bats. There was a high degree of overlap among species’ diets despite differences...

Data from: A phantom ultrasonic insect chorus repels low-flying bats, but most are undeterred

Jodi Sedlock, Dylan Gomes, Sarah Woody, Buyung Hadi & Jesse Barber
Abstract 1. The acoustic environment can serve as a niche axis, structuring animal behaviour by providing or obscuring salient information. Meadow katydid choruses occupy the ultrasonic, less studied, realm of this acoustic milieu, form dense populations in some habitats, and present a potential sensory challenge to co-occurring ultrasonic-hearing animals. Aerial-hawking insectivorous bats foraging immediately over vegetation must listen for echoes of their prey and other cues amidst the chorus din. 2. We experimentally created the...
