- We found no studies that evaluated the effects of training arborists and forestry operatives to identify potential bat roosts on bat populations.
‘We found no studies’ means that we have not yet found any studies that have directly evaluated this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Bat roosts within trees can be difficult to identify. Arborists and forestry operatives may be trained to identify potential roost features and the signs associated with bat use, such as droppings, staining, smells and substrate changes.
