Abstract

All European bats are more or less endangered, and in some countries certain species have already gone extinct. In Croatia, by the Nature Protection Act all bat species are protected and this research will contribute to even more protection and understanding of their biology. During the summer of 2012 a field study has been conducted in which a transect sampling method has been used by bat detectors. The study was conducted in two different habitation in Zagreb and those were semi-natural habitation Jarun and urbanized city center. A total of 11 bat species has been identified and after the identification, bat activity comparison between Jarun and the center, bat activity of certain species during different periods of the study and bat activity of certain species depending on different habitation type have become our goals. A total of 2741 bat sound signals in Jarun and 1086 in the center of Zagreb has been collected and studied. There have been 9 different species found in Jarun with a density of 148 bats per one km and 6 different species in the center with a density of 36 bats per one km.
