Trophic ecology of two sibling and sympatric species of bats: Myotis myotis et Myotis blythii (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae). First results



Trophic ecology of two sibling and sympatric species of bats: Myotis myotis et Myotis blythii (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae). First results



Mammalia 57(4): 519-531



M. myotis and M. blythii are two sibling species of bats that live sympatrically over wide areas of the Western Palearctic region, and which often coexist intimately in their nursery roosts. According to the principle of "limiting similarity", this cohabitation should imply an interspecific ecological differentiation. The hypothesis of a niche separation at the trophic level is tested here.
