This grant to Stanford University will support a project centered on observing bat bioindicators whose population fluctuations provide an early warning system for environmental degradation from disruptions such as climate change, herbicides, and urban encroachment. Stanford’s Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve comprises 1,190 acres and has been protected and used for environmental observation and experimentation for over a century. The project will assemble an instrument on the preserve’s land that will observe responses of bats to environmental change at details not currently attained. The planned instrument will eventually be suitable for deployment across the globe, providing an international network for observing the health of agricultural regions.
