From: Fruit bats adjust their foraging strategies to urban environments to diversify their diet

Fig. 1

Roost and expertise shape foraging patterns. a The trajectories of 10 individuals: left—five bats from an urban colony who mostly forage in an urban area, and right—five bats from a rural colony who mostly forage in a rural area (each individual is colored differently). b The movement of one rural- and one urban-roosting bat. In both a and b, yellow dots depict foraging sites and yellow squares depict the roosts. c The number of sites visited by the bats as a function of the percent of time they spent in urban areas. In c and d, each point represents one night and all bats are overlaid. d The number of tree species visited as a function of the sites visited by the bat. e The Shannon index as a function of the percent of time they spent in urban areas. Each point represents a bat, black for bats from urban colonies and gray for bats from rural colonies. See main text for the statistical analysis of panels ce
