Background information and definitions
The frequency, intensity and duration of heat waves is expected to increase with climate change. Adapting bat roost structures to buffer against extreme temperatures could help to protect bats during extreme weather events.
For an intervention that aims to maintain the microclimate of artificial roosts, see ‘Species management – Manage microclimate of artificial bat roosts’.
