Previous studies about the effect of artificial light on bats focused almost exclusively on non-migratory species, yet migratory animals such as birds are known to be largely affected by light pollution. Thus, we conducted a field experiment to evaluate if bat migration is affected by artificial light at night. In late sum- mer, we presented artificial green light of 520 nm wavelength to bats that were migrating south along the shoreline of the Baltic Sea. Using a light on-off treatment, we observed that the activity of Pipistrellus nathusii and P. pygmaeus, the two most abundant migratory spe- cies at our site, increased by more than 50% in the light-on compared to the light-off treat- ment.Weobserved an increased number of feeding buzzes during the light-on compared to the light-off treatment for P. nathusii. However, feeding activity was low in general and did not increase disproportionately during the light-on treatment in relation to the overall echolocation call activity of bats. Further, P. nathusii were attracted towards the green light at a distance of about 23 m, which is way beyond the echolocation detection range for insects of Nathusius’ bats.Wetherefore infer that migratory bats were not attracted to artificial green light because of high insect densities, but instead by positive phototaxis.Weconclude that artificial light at night may potentially impact bat migration in a yet unrecognized way.", "link"=>"http://www.mendeley.com/research/migratory-bats-respond-artificial-green-light-positive-phototaxis", "reader_count"=>43, "reader_count_by_academic_status"=>{"Unspecified"=>2, "Researcher"=>12, "Student > Doctoral Student"=>3, "Student > Ph.
