Forest logging is a major threat to global biodiversity (Sala
et al. 2000) and a growing demand for timber means logging
rates are increasing (Perry, Ram & Hart 2008). Consequently,
there is a drive to develop forest timber harvesting strategies
that maintain biodiversity alongside timber extraction.
Attempts are, therefore, being made to integrate conservation
into production forests according to ecologically sustainable
forest management principles such as themaintenance of stand
structural complexity and landscape connectivity and heterogeneity
Forest bats are one group with great potential for assessing
the effectiveness of ecologically sustainable forestmanagement
because they are typically sensitive to logging impacts and play
key ecological roles in forest ecosystems, indirectly affecting
other forest biota (Clarke, Rostant & Racey 2005). Although
there are many ways in which logging affects forest bats (Hutson,
Mickleburgh & Racey 2001), reductions in the quantity
and suitability of foraging habitat, food resources or roosting
sites are likely to be major impacts (e.g. Brigham et al. 1997;
