This Demonstration shows the predicted probability of the presence of bats by low-frequency (less than 35 kHz) bat calls at Dillon Wind Energy Facility, Riverside County, California, USA. The probability ( axis) is a function of night within the time period (February 16, 2008 to May 17, 2008; axis) as well as meteorologic variables. You can observe the impact on presence probability as a function of wind speed (m/s), wind direction (degrees, 270° is west), temperature (° C), and moon phase (as a proportion).
