Company Description

The Bat Conservation Trust (BCT) has been consulted by researchers from the programme during the past few months. While BCT was not able to influence the storyline, we were able to offer general bat advice, as well as information on bats and the law. Call ... more

Dr Karen Haysom, Director of Science

Karen heads the Conservation Team, which includes the National Bat Monitoring Programme team, Biodiversity Officers and Bat Group Officers. Before joining BCT in January 2006, she studied Zoology and trained as a research ecologist at Durham University. She subsequently worked in ecological research at the Scottish Agricultural College, CABI Bioscience and Reading University. Her research has mainly focused on the impact of agricultural management practices on invertebrate and plant communities, agri-environment scheme policy and invasive non-native species.
Karen first trained for a bat roost visitor licence when she was a member of Durham Bat Group in 1993 and has been spending her spare time with bats ever since. She has volunteered as a Natural England bat warden for the Hampshire and Thames & Chilterns NE teams since 2001. Over the years, working around Britain has enabled her to join Essex, Ayrshire, Dumfries, Hampshire and Surrey Bat Groups. Her main involvement is with Berks. & South Bucks. Bat Group which she has chaired since 2003. She enjoys taking part in BCT's National Bat Monitoring Programme and leading bat walks in Berkshire each summer.

Could you transfer $1000 from my current account to my deposit account? venerx reviews Dr Karen Haysom, of the Bat Conservation Trust, said: "All Bats in the UK are protected because of the severe declines they experienced in the past and their continued vulnerability to the loss of roosting and feeding habitat.


Changes At The Bat Conservation Trust - Bat Conservation Trust

www.bats.org.uk [cached]

Unfortunately as part of this restructuring, we have had to make the very difficult decision of making one of our senior members of staff redundant, Dr Karen Haysom (current Director of Science). Karen is handing over her current role by 7 July 2014 and will then be working on some discrete tasks for BCT, finishing on 23 July 2014.

"This trend is a definite sign of hope," says Karen Haysom, director of science at the British Bat Conservation Trust, a partner in the study.

Armed with a statistical method that proved key in earlier EEA studies of European butterfly and bird population trends, Haysom and her collaborators input decades of national bat data into a dataset that revealed how bat numbers changed from winter to winter according to species and region. Never before had such data - reported by scientists and also by thousands of amateur bat enthusiasts, who counted hibernating animals in local caves and other roosts - been consolidated over such a broad time span and geography, Haysom says. "This is giving us a chance to put our numbers in a different and very valuable context, and think about why some bat species are doing well in some countries compared with others," she says. Population trends were calculated in Latvia, Hungary, The Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Slovenia, Slovakia, Germany and the UK.
The bat-phone
In the second half of the 20th century, European bat populations plummeted due to increased agriculture, intentional killing, destruction of roosts and exposure to roofs treated with a pest-repellent called dieldrin. The decline was further fuelled by bats' naturally long lifespan and slow reproduction rate, Haysom says. But recent conservation efforts including cave protection, bat-friendly farming practices, local bat-assistance hotlines - bat-phones, if you will - and educational campaigns like local "bat walks" may have helped turn the tide. The EEA team found that nine bat species, including Daubenton's bat (Myotis daubentoni) and the Mediterranean horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus euryale) have increased, while several others held stable.
Citizen science
"Though the report is heartening, the job is certainly not done," Haysom says.
