Background information and definitions
Non-predatory invasive species may compete with bats for resources. For example, the invasive rose-ringed parakeet Psittacula krameria has been reported to compete with and attack Leisler’s bats Nyctalus Leisleri roosting in tree cavities (Hernández-Brito et al. 2018).
Hernández-Brito D., Carrete M., Ibáñez C., Juste J. & Tella J.L. (2018) Nest-site competition and killing by invasive parakeets cause the decline of a threatened bat population. Royal Society Open Science, 5, 172477.
