Microchiropteran bats are a significant component of Australia's mammalian fauna, consisting of around 25-30% of mammal fauna thourhgout Australia, and up to 42% in some areas of Queenaldn. They are recognized as important indicators of environmental disturbance and overall ecosystem health. However, relatively little is known about their ecology and habitat preferences.

The objective of this study was to examine the relative contributions of a wide range of environmental correlates to microchiropteran bat habitat preferences in the Bunya Mountians, south-east Queensland.
