The entrance to the Aeolus cave in Dorset is littered with the bones of thousands of bats that have died since white nose syndrome first appeared in Vermont. Biologists are hoping research gathered from data collected over the winter there will help determine if more bats are surviving the disease.
Make it five years and five Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament titles for Hampton's women.
Jericka Jenkins hit the go-ahead free throw with 1:20 left and Hampton claimed its third straight NCAA tournament berth, holding on to beat Howard 54-53 on Saturday in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship game.
There's no question the decline of what was once Vermont's most common bat species - the little brown bat - has slowed, but it's too soon to say the species is recovering, Bennett said.
Even though there are bat maternal colonies in New York where the reproduction rate of little brown bats appears to be about the same as before white nose, it's not clear if the young bats are surviving at the same rate, she said.
