All other characteristics were similar at roost
sites and random sites (Table 1).
The cluster actually can serve as a unit for heat production and cause an increase in temperature at roost
sites in caves (Twente, 1955; Betts, 1997).
For data collection at roost
structures, each roost tree was treated as a plot center and a circular plot was surveyed at each roost site.
The lower numbers of cut stumps at roost
