Reports the results of an investigation into the metabolic rate of individuals and clusters of Miniopterus schreibersii, conducted to assess their thermoregulatory capabilities, the effect of clustering on their thermoregulation, and the implications of roost microclimate for metabolism and hibernation in the species. Illustrates with graphs.
