Chacra activity Purma activity Forest activity
Activity patterns of 8 species of frugivorous bat in Chacra (TOP), Purma (MIDDLE), and mature forest (BOTTOM). Each time period represents 1 hour beginning at sundown. Notice that bats activity during twilight (time period 1) increases as the height and fullness of the forest canopy increases.
