Abstract

Mossy forest is a unique type of vegetation that occurs in montane areas. Such areas are characterized by the appearance of mosses growing on virtually all surface areas. Due to the scarcity and sensitive condition of the area, wildlife studies are limited and up to date there is no information on the diversity and abundance of bats in mossy forests locally. Hence, bats diversity survey was conducted using l0 mist nets. A total of 8 individuals consisting of 5 species of bats were captured throughout 23 trapping nights. The low capture rate and diversity of bats was probably because of the loss of habitat around the mossy forest. The mossy forest is beside a 2 hectare logged over forest and surrounded by tea plantations. Currently, the 2 hectare logged over forest is being reforested and managed by Regional Environmental Awareness Cameron Highlands (R.E.A.C.H) as the society’s Biodiversity Centre and it is hoped that more surveys are done to gain more information on the biodiversity in this sensitive area.
