We capture and ringing bats since 2012 in three differents localities in the south of Spain, Sevilla, huelva and Cádiz. We have captured 198 bats of the specie Nyctalus lasiopterus for the purpose of this projec. The purpose was to tag the bats and therefore later can read them in the smart bat boxes that were settle up in the population of Huelva. The bat boxes have an antenna and a tag reader that can collect the data and thus monitor the activity of the bats.
The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 11 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.

The project SUMHAL aims at implementing a strategy for biodiversity conservation in the western Mediterranean hotspot by setting a technologically efficient and scientifically robust system. The project combines fieldwork and virtual research environments for the recording, storing, analysis, and dissemination of the conservation status and threats of biodiversity in Andalusia (Southern Spain)

|Identifier||LIFEWATCH-2019-09-CSIC-4, POPE 2014-2020|
|Funding||This study was funded by MICINN through European Regional Development Fund [SUMHAL, LIFEWATCH-2019-09-CSIC-04, POPE 2014-2020].|
|Study Area Description||The vision of the subproject Bats in the WP is increase the knowleage of the biggest bats in Europe, Nyctalus lasiopterus in the three best known colonies, in the Southwest of Spain. The three locatilies where the data has been collected are one urban park in Seville, the zoobotanical garden in Jerez de la Frontera and the most preserve part of the Doñana National Park, Doñana Biological Reserve.|
|Design Description||The specific aims of the work package are: Task 1. Design, generate and provide content for a repository of Nyctalus lasiopterus information in the best known population of the species in the world. Task 2. Demonstrate the utility of the intelligents bat-boxes we have and the use of RFID as a great and no to invase tool for research and conservation of the species. Task 3. Distribute and syndicate the information generated in regional, national and international platforms.|
The personnel involved in the project:
The main idea is to control the known populations and monitor the new borns and the reproductive status of the individuals. This will give us an idea of how populations evolve over time and with the different impacts to which they may be subjected. With the smart-batboxes we can study the activity of the bats.
|Study Extent||We have been capturing bats, Nyctalus lasiopterus, since 2012. Every year we performance a masive netting day, it is usually in July but in 2021 and 2022 we carried out more than one samplig day at each location, Doñana Biological Reserve, Mª Luisa Park and Zoobotanical in Jerez.|
|Quality Control||As we capture every year we can check and control the number of the RFID and the ring in every bats.|
Method step description:
- First of all, we trapped the bats with mist-nests during the night in the places we know the have their roosts, whether it is the coming out at sunset or the going back during the night or at sunrise. Once we catch them we determine the sex, age and status of the bats, and finally we ring them and set the RFID, afterthat we read the RFID with a manual reader to be sure the transponder was setted right. Finally we release the bats to the nature in good conditions. We try to do all the process in the shortest time possible to avoid stressing the animal. When the sampling method is in a batbox and not with mistnets, the procedure is the same, the difference is that we capture the bats directly from the box instead setting a net. This is usually the process when we want to tag the youngs when they do not fly yet.
|Purpose||The dataset can be used to work with data from bats during a long-term survey, althought to do this, it will be necessary to understand the next dataset that we will upload.|
|Maintenance Description||This dataset will be close and will not be updated, unless errors or issues are reported by users.|
