Table 2 Roost network metrics of three northern long-eared bat (Myotis septentrionalis) maternity colonies on the Fernow Experimental Forest, West Virginia, USA, from 2008 to 2009 in burned and unburned forest. Network metrics were calculated directly from the two-mode network consisting of bats and day-roosts. The direction of difference between observed and equivalent random networks are given in parentheses where applicable.

From: Northern Long-Eared Bat Day-Roosting and Prescribed Fire in the Central Appalachians, USA
