Abstract

Studies in which the Australian bat Myotis adversus was marked and recaptured showed that mature males tend to be solitary, are strongly attached to a particular site, and apparently defend home sites. Harem formation concurrent with mating has been observed, and the bond between the mother and her young extends beyond extends beyond nursing.
