Rekha Salvi, Vijay Kumar Koli
Abstract: Pteropus giganteus is among the largest flying bat species of the world and play important role in pollination and seed dispersal. It prefers roost on tall trees. We conducted the this study from November, 2007 to February, 2009 to assess the roost site selection of P. giganteus in Girwa tehsil of Udaipur district, Rajasthan, India. Road surveys were performed to identify the roosting sites. After identification of roosting sites, name of the sites, number of bats and other characteristics were noted. During the study, a total of 14 roosting sites were identified where bats were rooted on trees. Trees were belonged to eight species and five families. Presence of high tree densities and numerous waterbodies in the tehsil might be a reason for a sound number of the species.
