Abstract: The endangered Hawaiian hoary bat, Lasiurus cinereus semotus
(H. Allen), has an island-wide distribution on the island of Hawai'i. However,
abundance estimates suggest that its endangered status is appropriate. Although
distributed across wide ranges in elevation, temperature, and rainfall, this bat is
most often associated with native vegetation. Its diurnal and seasonal activity
patterns argue against migration within the island of Hawai'i. These patterns
suggest that the Hawaiian bat uses more than one foraging site and that its use
of foraging sites is influenced by changes in insect biomass.
