Action: Retain buffers around roost trees in logged areas
Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We found no studies that evaluated the effects of retaining buffers around roost trees in logged areas 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.
Buffers of vegetation may be retained around trees with bat roosts, or potential bat roosts, to avoid disturbance and to maintain the microclimate and light levels within the roost.
