The analysis of bat investigations in Medobory Natural Reserve since the time of its creation (19902016) was carried out. The bat fauna of the Reserve was first studied in 1997 by a Ukrainian-Polish expedition (State Museum of Natural History, Ukraine and Jagiellonian University, Poland), and later by V. Tyshchenko (19992002), O. Kusnezh (20112012), and scientists of the Reserve. As a result, 19 species of bats were found within protected areas of the Reserve, such as Rhinolophus hipposideros, Plecotus auritus, P. austriacus, Barbastella barbastellus, Myotis myotis, M. dasycneme, M. bechsteinii, M. daubentonii, M. mystacinus, M. brandtii, M. alcathoe, Pipistrellus pipistrellus, P. nathusii, P. kuhlii, P. pygmaeus, Nyctalus leisleri, N. noctula, Eptesicus serotinus, and Vespertilio murinus. They represent 73 % of the species composition of the East European bat fauna indicating the great importance of the Reserve in its conservation.
