If you go looking for brown bats you will find them in big colonies. Big Brown Bats and Little Brown Bats are similar because they are both covered in fur, have leathery wings, and have short round ears. These bats are also very different. Little Brown Bats weigh 14-16 grams with a body size of…

    of the bat species, if the total number of bats becomes very small, is a decrease in fitness as there will be less protection among the population of little brown bats. A decrease in fitness means the little brown bats won't be able to defend themselves against predators as their group numbers are too small. In addition, during the colder season, these little brown bats won’t be able to generate enough heat among themselves, which can potentially lead to their deaths. Another threat to the…

    Chiroptera forelimb morphological evolution is what allows them the gift of flight, which is their forelimb main function. Their wings contain an altered tetrapod limb structure (Cooper and Tabin 2008). Changes include increasing membrane surface area between the digits and between the forelimb and flank (Cooper and Tabin 2008). In addition to a reduced bone thickness which decreases the bats weight (Cooper and Tabin 2008). Also a strengthen forelimb and increase in muscle mass of the forelimb,…

    within wing tissue of Little Brown Myostis infected with White Nose Syndrome to bats without White Nose Syndrome. As expected, Pseudogymnoascus destructans caused significant changes in gene expression within the tissue. Inflammatory responses paired with anti-fungal host responses were triggered by the introduction of Pseudogymnoascus destructans. Necessary chemokines (Small secreted proteins that induce a certain response) were produced in tissue with Pseudogymnoascus destructans, but immune…

    This shows Onychonycteris finneyi, a bat fossil. The image shows its wing digits widely spread out with small claws on tip of each finger. It also shows the long tail found in earlier bat fossils (Moskowitz, 2008). Molecular Mechanisms The origins of bats wing muscles, molecular and cellular mechanisms are unknown but this research shows that the wing muscles of bats come from “a multiple myogenic source of different embryonic origins” (Tokita, Abe, && Suzuki, 2012). The results conclude that…

    Another way in which they are of use to humans is in scientific study.Vampire bats are currently being studied by scientists to produce a possible medicine that will aid people with heart problems. Their saliva contains a blood thinning agent that could possibly be used in a ground breaking medication that will not harm bat populations and will hopefully reduce the negative stigma for the bats. There is also research surrounding bats echolocation abilities that could assist the blind in the…
