Background information and definitions
The ability of bats to shift their ranges in response to climate change will depend on the availability of suitable foraging and roosting habitat. Protecting, creating or restoring suitable habitat at expanding range fronts may help bats to move to new areas. However, this intervention will also depend on the availability of dispersal routes between habitats. See ‘Enhance natural habitat features to improve landscape connectivity to allow for range shifts of bats’.
