Biology Project data files

This post contains an attached ZIP file.  The ZIP file is the raw data from the past ten years of bat census trips.  Each trip generated three files – One for isopod count, one for guano pile status and one for bat count. Bill Gee CarrollcaveBioProjectData

Several of our count areas had zero bats, which I have never seen before. There were three sections with good populations of grey bats, perhaps 600 to 1000 individuals in each.

5/25/2015 – student Bio trip

continued onto Convention Hall, and with Bill Gee previously scheduled to be back in UL2 to download a datalogger, I assumed they wouldn’t be by themselves long

4/11/2015 – Upper Thunder Biology count

I hoped to be back at the ladder by 8:00pm so we would have a bit of daylight remaining.
