The only mammals that truly fly, there are several species found in East Tennessee some of which are listed on the endangered species list. Bats are actually good to have around as a single Bat will consume thousands of flying insects in one feeding. Bats will often use attics of Homes and Business to roost. A colony of bats can range from just a few to a few thousand. Urine and feces (Guano) piled up in attics, walls and floors can cause extensive damage and possible health issues.

The program also contains some advice for people planting trees in their yards and landscapes.
Soil Health and Production Benefits of Mob Grazing
 
57:56
Presented by Doug Peterson, State Soil Health Conservationist, USDA NRCS Missouri, Gallatin, MO. View the webinar at http://conservationwebinars.net to earn CEUs. This webinar focuses on how both soil health and productivity can be improved by managing grazing to mimic the impact bison had on prairies, a system characterized by high plant diversity, intensive grazing, trampling of vegetation, and long rest periods. Because of their vegetative cover, pastures and rangeland are often overlooked as having degraded soils. In fact, grazing lands suffer from soil disturbing activities caused by overgrazing that results in reduced root mass, increased weed pressure, compacted soils, greater surface runoff, and diminished soil habitat. Our presenter will explain how managing stock density can be the most powerful tool available to manage grassland resources. He will cover how stock density affects utilization, reduces spot grazing, controls weed competition, improves manure distribution, and provides seed to soil contact. Simply put, managing stock density has the potential to improve and build more soil than we ever thought possible.

iDigBio: Using Digital Specimen Data in Biodiversity Conservation Planning and Implementation
 
01:09:39
Gil Nelson, iDigBio, Florida State University Molly Phillips, iDigBio, University of Florida The first two decades of the 21st Century have seen an exponential increase in the generation and mobilization of digital, specimen-based biodiversity data and turned natural history museums and biodiversity collections in academic institutions into major resources of conservation data. Led in the U.S. largely by the National Science Foundation’s Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections (ADBC) initiative, more than 700 U.S. institutions in 50 states and two territories are digitizing their biodiversity collections and serving these data through iDigBio (Integrated Digitized Biocollections), the national coordinating center for digitization and data mobilization in the U.S. The iDigBio portal (https://www.idigbio.org/portal) now serves more than 110 million records representing 300-400 million specimens, and just over 24 million media records, the majority of which are 2D images. These resources expose previously difficult-to-access collections to wider audiences of conservation practitioners and provide access to the best biodiversity data in the modern era outside of nature itself. This webinar will focus on the brief history of data mobilization in the U.S., the data that are now available and accessible to conservation planners, and how these data can be employed in the implementation of conservation strategies. An overview of the iDigBio data portal will be included.

Bat Houses and How To Attract Bats
 
01:23
For info how to attract bats click here: https://www.wildbirdstoreonline.com/collections/bat-houses Wild Bird Store Online, a subsidiary of B2C Retail, LLC is owned and operated by nature lovers. We offer innovative bat nesting boxes, songbird houses, owl nesting boxes, wildlife feeders, baths and other birding accessories such as binoculars and optics. Our site was designed and developed to provide an enjoyable and convenient shopping experience for like-minded nature lovers. There is one nocturnal visitor in particular we’re talking about here with no feathers or fur and that is the bat. Bats are an incredibly useful animal to try to attract to your area. We offer exceptional bat houses at affordable prices in an effort to provide more housing and assist these little mammals reproduce and thrive. We offer outstanding bat houses for sale in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. These little flying mammals really need help to survive and so it’s truly a mutually beneficial relationship since they really assist with getting rid of mosquitos. Although pesticides contribute to the decline of the bat population, human interference and fewer roosting sites also play a part. Our man-made bat boxes make great habitats for the species, which in turn, benefit the entire planet. Bats can eat between 1,000 and 4,000 bugs each night so you can imagine the effect an entire bat colony can have. Just by putting up a box you’ll be contributing to bat conservation. That small step means fewer pesticides are put into our ecosystem. We sell bat houses manufactured by Songbird Essentials, Bird's Choice, Coveside, Looker and Heartwood among others. All American brands with a reputation for quality products and quality service using all local parts and labor. A few things to consider in selecting a bat house is the size, and location for mounting. We have single chamber, double chamber and triple chamber boxes to choose from. Obviously, the more chambers mean more bats so we’d always error on the side of providing more nesting chambers when possible. Our triple chamber OBC approved box can accommodate up to 300 bats if you can believe it. Those little guys can really cram together in an effort to keep safe and warm. Also, look for a nice rough finish on the wood to provide the essential traction that bats need. We suggest that each box should be mounted on the side of a building at a minimum height of 10-15 feet above ground, although tree mounting is acceptable if it is in a sunny position and out of the wind. Sunny locations away from prevailing winds and power lines are a perfect setting. In the Northern half of the country boxes should be mounted where they will receive roughly four hours of morning sun. In the Southern states two hours of morning sun will be sufficient. We sincerely appreciate your visiting our store and should you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to contact us directly at: https://www.wildbirdstoreonline.com/pages/contact-us http://youtu.be/ejVkimJGw-0 Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wildbirdstoreonline Also check out our other video on squirrels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrH-cBh09L4

Conservation Lecture Series  White Nose Syndrome
 
01:21:42
White-nose Syndrome (WNS) has killed millions of bats in the eastern half of North America. It was first discovered in 2006 affecting hibernating bats in New York and since that time the disease has spread to 25 U.S. states and 5 Canadian provinces. Seven species of bats (including two Endangered Species) have had mortality due to WNS and an additional five species have tested positive for the causal agent (a fungus). This causal agent is Pseudogymnoascus destructans (Pd) and is directly responsible in causing mortality in hibernating bats due to WNS. Three additional states have had detections of this fungus but WNS has not been confirmed from those three states (yet!). Dr. David Wyatt, professor at Sacramento City College, will provide an overview of Pd, how it causes mortality in bats, why only hibernating bat species have exhibited mortality, what are current estimates of mortality, what is the current known distribution of WNS in North America, what efforts are being made to combat this disease, and the difficulties inherent in detecting and addressing this disease in western North America bat species. Please join us in this fascinating discussion of a wildlife disease that has such devastating impacts on numerous species in this ecologically and economically important group of mammals.

An Experimental Case Study for Soil Health
 
01:04:01
Presented by C. Wayne Honeycutt, Ph.D., Deputy Chief, USDA NRCS Science and Technology, Washington, D.C. Dr. Honeycutt served as a Research Soil Scientist for 14 years and a Research Leader for 10 years at the USDA-ARS New England Plant, Soil, and Water Laboratory where he led and conducted interdisciplinary research on nutrient cycling and sustainable cropping systems. View the webinar at http://conservationwebinars.net to earn CEUs. To enhance adoption of soil health management systems, it is important that soil health benefits be demonstrated with statistically rigorous research. Join the webinar to learn about an experimental case study where improving soil health increased crop yield as much as supplemental irrigation. Potato yield in Maine has remained relatively constant for over 50 years, despite increased nutrient and pesticide inputs. To identify what was limiting productivity, cropping systems were designed and implemented to reduce one or more potential constraints to productivity. Status Quo, Soil Conserving, Soil Improving, and Disease Suppressive cropping systems were established and evaluated under both rainfed and irrigated management for their impacts on plant growth and yield, soil chemical-physical-biological properties, tuber diseases, soilborne diseases, foliar diseases, economics, and their interactions. Learn about the effects of the cropping systems on soil properties, how plant growth and yield responded to changes in soil health, and how management systems that improve soil health can reduce supplemental water needs.
Golden-Winged Warbler Ecology and Guidelines for Creating Breeding Habitat
 
01:30:57
Presented by Jeff Larkin, Ph.D., Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and Marja Bakermans, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Researcher, Indiana University of Pennsylvania The Golden-winged Warbler is a neo-tropical migrant that breeds in early successional habitats of North America. This imperiled songbird has experienced a 90%+ population decline in the Appalachian region over the past 50 years. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is currently considering listing this species under the Endangered Species Act. The recent completion of a study in portions of Pennsylvania and Maryland provided the foundation of a Golden-winged Warbler Forestland BMP publication. These BMP's have potential for implementation through Farm Bill programs on private lands. Learn more by viewing this webinar.

Bat

Bat
Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera whose forelimbs form webbed wings, making them the only mammals naturally capable of true and sustained flight. By contrast, other mammals said to fly, such as flying squirrels, gliding possums, and colugos, can only glide for short distances. Bats do not flap their entire forelimbs, as birds do, but instead flap their spread-out digits, which are very long and covered with a thin membrane or patagium. This video targeted to blind users.

Communicating About Bats and Disease in National Parks
 
38:56
Bat Week is an annual, international celebration of the role of bats in nature! Join us to learn about communicating about bats and disease in national parks. Bats are both affected by diseases in parks and may be vectors of zoonotic diseases. How parks communicate about bats and disease has the potential to affect the public’s perception of the conservation value of these animals. Kristy Burnett will examine how we communicate about disease risk to bats from white-nose syndrome. This exotic fungus was first detected in 2006 in New York, but has spread to more than half of the U.S. and five Canadian provinces, killing up to 100% of bats in some colonies. Communicating consistent messages about WNS in the National Park Service is challenging, as individual parks have different levels of risk and routes of introduction. In addition, bats are often portrayed negatively in popular culture, making positive conservation messages more difficult to convey. Using WNS communication as an example, Kristy will discuss ways that service-wide communication regarding a particular resource issue can be researched and developed. Danielle Buttke will discuss disease risk from bats, specifically rabies. Recent attention to zoonotic diseases and the One Health Initiative has resulted in increased messaging about potential threats that wildlife may pose to human health. However, little is known about the efficacy (e.g., ability to increase risk prevention behaviors) of public health education around zoonotic diseases or the potential for unintended negative consequences (e.g., decreased societal tolerance of wildlife). In response, a study was designed to determine how messages about the risk of bat rabies influenced public perceptions of bats, conservation intentions, and prevention behaviors. Incorporating One Health messaging into public health messages may improve support for conservation AND adherence to public health recommendations, a win-win for public health and bats.

Courroie de distribution : Les conseils de nos garagistes / Top Entretien #4  (avec Denis Brogniart)
 
01:01
Souvent ignorée par les automobilistes, la courroie de distribution est pourtant un élément essentiel de la motorisation d'un véhicule. Véritable chef d'orchestre, elle permet de synchroniser plusieurs éléments dans le moteur, en particulier le vilebrequin, la pompe à injection et les arbres à cames. Sans elle, le véhicule ne pourrait tout simplement pas avancer. Il convient donc de faire régulièrement vérifier sa distribution par un garagiste agréé en tenant compte des préconisations du constructeur. La courroie de distribution est l'un des éléments les plus sollicités de votre motorisation. Elle présente à ce titre des risques d'usure importants. Au moindre signe de dysfonctionnement, les garagistes Top Garage sauront déterminer dans les meilleurs délais la cause du problème et remplacer la pièce fautive. Le changement de la courroie est une procédure longue – elle dure en général plus de 4 heures – qui nécessite le recours à des professionnels auto formés et agréés. En utilisant un outillage spécifique, nos garagistes se chargeront du remplacement de votre courroie en respectant les tensions et le montage d'origine. Le cas échéant, ils pourront également remplacer les galets. La fréquence de révision varie en fonction des constructeurs. Elle doit généralement être effectuée tous les 5 ans, ou 150 000 kilomètres, ou après le remplacement d'un joint de culasse ou de la pompe à eau. Pourquoi est-il important de faire vérifier sa distribution ? Une courroie de distribution en bon état garantit le refroidissement de votre moteur et l'alternance des phases d'admission et d'échappement. Devant l'apparition d'un crissement suspect ou la découverte d'une fuite d'huile, il est fortement recommandé de faire appel à l'expertise d'un professionnel de l'automobile.

Bat

Bat
Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera (/kaɪˈrɒptərə/; from the Greek χείρ - cheir, "hand" and πτερόν - pteron, "wing") whose forelimbs form webbed wings, making them the only mammals naturally capable of true and sustained flight. By contrast, other mammals said to fly, such as flying squirrels, gliding possums, and colugos, can only glide for short distances. Bats do not flap their entire forelimbs, as birds do, but instead flap their spread-out digits, which are very long and covered with a thin membrane or patagium. Bats are the second largest order of mammals (after the rodents), representing about 20% of all classified mammal species worldwide, with about 1,240 bat species divided into two suborders: the less specialized and largely fruit-eating megabats, or flying foxes, and the highly specialized and echolocating microbats. About 70% of bat species are insectivores. Most of the rest are frugivores, or fruit eaters. A few species, such as the fish-eating bat, feed from animals other than insects, with the vampire bats being hematophagous, or feeding on blood. This video is targeted to blind users.
