Over half are quoted in the bibliography and readers should additionally consult the 2 European bat journals. However. An arbitrary assessment was made as to whether the details were valid and. Despite one third of the indigenous terrestrial mammal species in Europe being bats.INTRODUCTION National and international agencies. The EEC had become aware of its commitment to international conservation in 1979 when the Bern Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats was published and presented by the Council of Europe to its 21 Member States for signing and ratification. how 5 . However. which contain many more papers and references. often in obscure journals. Brink in the early 1950s (1967) was one of the first to attempt a compilation of distribution maps for the European bats and these have been reproduced many times. although much has been published. particularly in Poland and the USSR. I hope it will also stimulate more systematic recording and detailed ecological research. societies and individuals are increasingly seeking information on the current distribution and status of bats in Europe.This was needed so that there could be a co-ordinated approach to the conservation of these biota. which are necessaryto establish conservation requirements for each species. Thus. if so. ecology or status. present knowledge is much improved and new maps are needed. little is known of their detailed distribution and numbers. This report is an attempt to summarize the present status of bats in 27 countries in western Europe and provides sources where more detailed information can be found. Many bats move between summer and winter roosts and these may be separated by large distances. A few species have significant populations in EEC countries in winter (eg Vespertilio murinus) but in summer these bats form nursery colonies in north-east Europe. Roer 1971). METHODS A draft was prepared by consulting about 450 papers giving information on distribution. Myotis and Nyctalus. The stimulus to produce this report came in 1980 when the Environment and Consumer Protection Service of the Commission of the EuropeanCommunities (EEC) requested information on the threatened flora and vertebrate fauna within the EEC. it is widely scattered. accumulation of knowledge has gathered momentum and. it is vital to consider the range and migrations of a species when preparing conservation strategies (Strelkov 1969.

held at Bonn. Poland. and some providing details for 2 or more countries. Opinions about status are inevitably subjective. particularly regarding status and distribution of individual species. Thirty-nine scientists from 17 States (see Acknowledgements) provided corrections.the information should be presented. Partial information is given for Rumania and Bulgaria. Hungary. but for many a large proportion of their range is included. especially for those species which are difficult to find. there were contradictory opinions. but Pipistrellus nathusii (map 22). Some of the 120 scientists from 16 Europeancountries provided comments at the meeting and 38 copies of the draft were sent to scientists in 17 countries for more detailed comments and additions. observers often have the impression that declines are far larger than is apparent from recent studies. Within Europethere are only a few small areas where detailed work allows quantitative statements. The draft was presented at the first EuropeanSymposium on Bat Research. eg. Historic records are usually lacking but sometimes former colony size can be estimated. INTERPRETATIONOF MAPS The maps show the areaswhere bats may be caught either roosting. However. We have used our judgement in presenting the information here and we are entirely responsible for any errors. Decisions were derived from the sum total of knowledge at the time. for example by measuring the area covered by guano piles and relating that area to measured densities of bats in clusters. and hence re-assessment was constantly necessary. detailed assessment of the status of bats was confined to western Europe to the eastern borders of Finland. 16-20 March 1981. No species is totally limited to within western Europe. Czechoslovakia. However. and 6 . Although most information was complementary. although found widely in countries bordering the Atlantic and North Sea. in many highly agricultural and urbanized areas. Species which are widely distributed may differ greatly in abqndance. some collectively. SPECIES ACCOUNTS Since 1960. may total only a few hundred bats. Yugoslavia and Greece. feeding or migrating. DISTRIBUTIONAL AREAS Distributions have been plotted in all European countries east to the USSR. such as tree-roosting bats. Pipistrellus pipistrellus (map 21) is a common bat over most of Europe with numbers probably totalling several millions. 3 new bat species have been identified and described.

Dutch (N). HABITAT Little is known of the habitat requirements of most species. Usually the cause of a population change is unknown. German (G). bats are found in all types of habitat. but one colony of 7000 Miniopterus schreibersii present in 1950 in the west of France virtually disappearedin 10 years due to human disturbance (Brosset 1966). NOM ENCLATURE The classification and scientific nomenclature follows Corbet (1978) and selected. Additional local names were published by Roer and Hanak (1971). we can assume similar declines would have occurred elsewhere. many successfully adapted to and probably became more abundant in man-made habitats and particularly adopted buildings. mixed habitats.A large survey in Britain of house bats showed a decline of over 50% between 1978 and 1980 (Stebbings & Jefferies 1982. Italian (I). A few of the easily found species were studied from the 1930s and these projects often led to the disappearanceof those bats. Greatest abundance and species diversity are found in sheltered. Spanish (S) and Greek (H). Stebbings & Arnold 1982). Generally. even in a single site. Population recovery can only be slow because most bats produce a . or are occurring today. Changesin climate may also affect distribution and abundance. Although formerly living in natural habitats. With the present level of bat observation in most countries. and knowledge about the others is very limited and patchy. The sensitivity of bats to disturbance has only been well known since the early 1960s. even very large changes in population sizes will remain undetected. often showing immense declines. It was thought that adverse weather in late spring was the major cause. Despite intensive study of some species in local areas. including woodland. These species are morphologically very similar to other well-known forms.others are awaiting description. However. we have no precise information on overall population trends. pasture and riparian habitats. POPULATIONS About half of Europe's species have not been studied. but we do not have any reasonableidea of what changes happened historically. tunnels and mines for roosting. excepting the extreme arctic regions and alpine peaks. from our sparse ecological knowledge of these bats. In other areas of the Palaearcticwhere many of our species occur. widely used vernacular names are given when available in English (E). even less is known of their systematics and no doubt other species remain to be identified.

Bats are also protected in all other Europeancountries. to general habitat on which significant bat populations depend. and this sort of protection is now being afforded to some dwelling houses. Adoption of this measure should be a priority task in each country and is likely to have greatest benefit to the long-term conservation of bats. but again we have no precise measure of such effects. or casual disturbance by tourists or speleologists. Many countries have schemes to provide bat roost boxes (artificialtrees holes) and these are 10 . A most urgent need is to find new methods of dealing with insect and fungal infestatioi of buildings. Commercialization of caves often leads to depopulation of bats and more mines are now being developed as shelters from nuclear attack. Racey & Swift 1986). for example by the tidying up of ancient monuments where small gaps are infilled and cellars or tunnels have their entrances blocked by doors rather than grilles. Clark 1981). agricultural and riparian habitats with minimal use of pesticides. or destroyed by open cast quarrying (Plate 2). Also variable is the degree of implementation and public awareness in each country. In many States. but it does not act as a deterrent to prevent andalistic killing. From experimental work. new chemical preparations should be formulated which will be less damaging to bats. Research has already shown that the insecticide Permethrin is effective at controlling wood-boring beetles and does not appear to harm bats (Berry 1983. Legal protection is most useful for its educative value. exceptionally. Legislation will be required in all countries making these formulations mandatory in remedial timber treatment. Mines which have often been used by bats for hundreds of years are being blocked or capped. More insidious changes include loss of roost sites. All new timber used in buildings should be pre-treated.success in bats. providing it is publicised. Such formulations will involve some research but they could probably be produced with little difficulty and probably little more exPensethan existing products. The recent change from hay making to silage prevents the maturation of some insects and is probably reducing insect abundance and variety. mines and ancient monuments. which in the long term is much cheaper and more effective than remedial treatment. Also. CONSERVATION MEASURES Legal protection of bats is afforded to all species in all EECcountries. but the level of protection varies greatly between States. hollow trees and. we know that bats may be more sensitive to organochlorine pesticides than some other higher vertebrates (Jefferies 1972. individual bat roosts have been specifically protected. ie remedial timber treatment.

superstitions and hostility that is often directed to bats by the general public.very successful in attracting and possibly increasing bats in some habitats. to find what are the critical habitats and causes of declines. All countries should implement measures to protect bats. and this will help to ensure their long-term conservation. RECOMMENDATIONS An education programme is required in each country to explain the value of bats and to dispel the fear. Blocked caves and mines are being re-opened for bats and digging new tunnels is being suggested. Research should be done to develop treatments for insect and fungal infestations of buildings which are not harmful to roosting bats. and these treatments should become mandatory for all remedial timber work in buildings. The programme needs to create awareness in all levels of society of bats' requirements. Priority should be given to endangered and rare species. Disused railway and other tunnels can be made into suitable bat hibernacula by management of the internal climate. More research is required. particularly for the endangered species. 11 . Adequate protection should be given to all breeding colonies. especially the prevention of disturbance of cave colonies by speleologists and tourists.

THREATS

killing, habitat change involving the loss of large insects, particularly the beetles Melolontha and Geotrupes, are -the major threats and causes of declines. Also, because the bats hang conspicuously in easily accessible roosts, they are more prone to disturbance by man than the Vespertilionidae (Tupinier, pers. comm.).

CONSERVATION MEASURES Europe: It is protected in all countries. In Britain 4 of the 6 major breeding roosts (all buildings) have been given special protection and one was rebuilt just to accommodate the bats.
Caves in several countries have also been protected by legal agreement and gated to prevent unauthorized disturbance (Fairon, pers. comm.). All breeding roosts need protecting as well as a large range of hibernation roosts which seem vital for the species' survival. Individualsfrom one colony were known to live in areas up to 2500 km2 (205).
