Abstract:
More than 1125 bat species are found worldwide and India supports 119 species; of which 26 species are reported from Rajasthan. In Rajasthan, except Thar desert portion, documentation of this faunal group is either lacking or very poor in other parts of Rajasthan including Sariska National Park, Alwar. The present study reports 3 bat species from Sariska National Park that provides baseline data about chiropteran fauna of this Protected Area. With this reporting the chiropteran fauna of Alwar district also goes up to 8 species.
