Short summary
Bat carcass surveys guided by likely fall zone distributions require accurate descriptions of carcass aerodynamics. This research introduces a new methodology resulting in the first direct measurements of bat carcass drag coefficients. The drag coefficient for three carcasses of three different species was found to be within a range of 0.70–1.23, with a terminal velocity between 6.63 and 17.57 m s−1. This information is useful for assessing the impact of wind farm projects on wildlife.
