An Investigation of the Impact of Development Projects on Bat Populations: Comparing Pre- & Post-Development Bat Faunas (2008)

Published by Bat Conservation Ireland with support from the Heritage Council. This report presents work undertaken during the field season of 2008 where twelve projects which constitute a selection of development projects previously surveyed for bat populations were resurveyed by Bat Conservation Ireland. Mitigation measures implemented for bat populations were investigated to report their effectiveness for retaining such recorded bat fauna post-development. This report presents these results and endeavours to provide a measure of the effectiveness of such mitigation on local bat fauna.
