Bat Eco-Interactions Database

     · “With over 1,400 species worldwide, bats are critical components to many ecosystems as

       pollinators, seed dispersers, and consumers of night-flying insects, among many other ecological  

       roles. We created the Bat Eco-Interactions Database to facilitate scientific research worldwide  

       on bat diets and theecosystem services they provide by gathering all published, peer-reviewed

       accounts of these interactions.”
