Reproductive biology of pipistrellus mimus mimus in the indian desert



Reproductive biology of pipistrellus mimus mimus in the indian desert



Zeitschrift fuer Saeugetierkunde 48(4): 211-217



The reproductive biology of the pygmy pipistrelle, P. m. mimus (Wroughton) in western Rajasthan, India was investigated. Male bats remain fecund throughout the year. The littering activity continues for 12 mo., Jan.-Dec., when 8.3% (Nov.)-85.0% (Aug.) females are pregnant. The litter size varies from 4.5-13.5%, averaging 5.7. No postembryonic mortality was observed. Rainfall has indirect influence over regulation of bat populations through regulating insect diversity and abundance. A comparison of the reproductive biology of P. mimus was made with P. mimus in Nanded (Central India), Calcutta and Ceylon and mammals inhabiting Indian desert in general.
