Phenology of reproductive condition varies with age and spring weather conditions in male Myotis daubentonii and M. nattereri (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae)

Abstract:

We examine the extent to which intrinsic and extrinsic factors influence reproductive phenology in male bats at the population level. Using data from thirteen breeding seasons (2006–2018), encompassing the reproductive histories of 1546 Myotis daubentonii and 530 M. nattereri males, we compare rates of sexual maturation and the temporal distribution of phases of spermatogenesis between juvenile (born that season) and adult (born in previous seasons) males.
