      Gaining more information about the barbastelle bat will help us protect this bat and its habitat, mature forests. This is something that will benefit other forest bats. In addition, anything we learn about bat adaptations to environmental changes and the evolution of echolocation and foraging strategies in bats will be applicable to other bat species and can help with their conservation and understanding their behaviour and ecological requirements.
