Abstract

The work represents the results of the bat fauna survey in the Kremenetski Hory National Nature Park and adjacent areas, where, in 2018–2019 years, we recorded 12 bat species. Four of them (Myotis alcathoe, M. bechsteinii, M. dasycneme, M. nattereri) were recorded for the first time in the study area. The find of Myotis alcathoe is the first record of the species in Ternopil oblast and one of the few in Ukraine as a whole. The Kremenets mine was surveyed in different seasons, and 10 bat species were found there. The mine is an important bat hibernacula (in winter 2019, over 250 bat individuals were recorded here), as well as the autumn swarming site. The survey results demonstrate the importance of this underground site for the conservation and monitoring of bats in Ukraine and eastern Europe.
