- PublicaciónAcceso abiertoA database of common vampire bat reports(2022-02-16) Van de Vuurst, Paige; Diaz, M. Monica; Rodriguez-San Pedro, Annia; Allendes, Juan Luis; Brown, Natalie; Gutierrez, Juan David; Zarza, Heliot; De Oliveira, Stefan V.; Cardenas-Canales, Elsa; Barquez, Ruben M.; Escobar, Luis E.The common vampire bat (Desmodus rotundus) is a sanguivorous (i.e., blood-eating) bat species distributed in the Americas from northern Mexico southwards to central Chile and Argentina. Desmodus rotundus is one of only three mammal species known to feed exclusively on blood, mainly from domestic mammals, although large wildlife and occasionally humans can also serve as a food source. Blood feeding makes D. rotundus an effective transmissor of pathogens to its prey. Consequently, this species is a common target of culling efforts by various individuals and organizations. Nevertheless, little is known about the historical distribution of D. rotundus. Detailed occurrence data are critical for the accurate assessment of past and current distributions of D. rotundus as part of ecological, biogeographical, and epidemiological research. This article presents a dataset of D. rotundus historical occurrence reports, including >39,000 locality reports across the Americas to facilitate the development of spatiotemporal studies of the species.
