BATS OF TRANSBOUNDARY TERRITORIES OF CENTRAL ASIA

Bats of transboundary territories of Central Asia The concept of the project “Bats of transboundary territories of Central Asia (Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan) as indicators of biodiversity conservation and the beneficial components of biocenosis in the context of global climate change”. Many species of bats are currently on the verge of extinction. The problem has become especially acute in the last decades, which is connected with the unorganized or barbaric visit of such habitats for bats as caves, where a guided Smoking bats from their historical habitats takes place.

Project Rufford

Underground Habitats as a Unit for Conservation of Vulnerable Bat Communities in South-Western Kyrgyzstan The south-western part of Kyrgyzstan is a transboundary territory situated between Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The region is mountainous with karst relief and encloses the southern wall of Fergana Valley. These characteristics suggest a variety of underground habitats which play an important role for bat communities. The life cycle of the cave-dwelling bat species is closely related to the underground sites. Moreover, they form nursery colonies in the summer, which have high conservation priority. The conservation significance Continue Reading
