1.1.1: The objective of this research is to determine the relative role of community process in structuring gut-microbial composition and function in insectivorous bat species co-distributed across gradient of habitat degradation. Bats will be studied across a forest modification gradient and individually matched samples of gut-microbial composition, metagenome function, dietary composition, host genotype and measures of social interaction obtained for each bat. Interspecific associations will be assessed using co-occurrence network approaches.
