Abstract [en]

Habitat fragmentation is one of the most important factors affecting species extinction and biodiversity loss, Species habitat response expects to differ with habitat feature at different spatial scales and this study was to identify how bat diversity and individual bat species respond to different habitat amounts. The local bat species richness was observed in 156 different locations in Östergötland and the proportion of different habitats were calculated for circular areas with diameters ranging from 400 m. to 12 km. from each location. Although we found that the individual bat species responded differently to the amount of each habitat at different spatial scales, the bat species richness showed a decreasing response with increasing spatial scale. The strongest response of bat species richness to habitat characteristics was at a scale of 939 m.
