      Bats from different foraging guilds prey upon the pine processionary moth 

      Garín Atorrasagasti, Ignacio ORCID; Aiartza Azurtza, José Ramón ORCID; Goiti Ugarte, Urtzi ORCID; Arrizabalaga Escudero, Aitor; Nogueras, Jesús; Ibáñez, Carlos (PeerJ, 2019-03-08)
      Outbreaks of the processionary moth Thaumetopoea pityocampa (Denis & Schiffer-mailer, 1775), a forest pest from the Palearctic, are thought to induce a behavioral response of bats, but up to now the moth has been seldom ...

      DNA metabarcoding and spatial modelling link diet diversification with distribution homogeneity in European bats 

      Alberdi, Antton; Razgour, Orly; Aizpurua Arrieta, Ostaizka ORCID; Novella Fernández, Roberto; Aiartza Azurtza, José Ramón ORCID; Budinski, Ivana; Garín Atorrasagasti, Ignacio ORCID; Ibáñez, Carlos; Izagirre Estibaritz, Eñaut ORCID; Rebelo, Hugo; Russo, Danilo; Vlaschenko, Anton; Zhelyazkova, Violeta; Zrnčić, Vida; Gilbert, M. Thomas P. (Nature, 2020-03-02)
      Inferences of the interactions between species' ecological niches and spatial distribution have been historically based on simple metrics such as low-resolution dietary breadth and range size, which might have impeded the ...

      Molecular assays to reliably detect and quantify predation on a forest pest in bats faeces 

      Baroja Ibañez de Maeztu, Unai; Garín Atorrasagasti, Ignacio ORCID; Vallejo López, Nerea; Caro Aramendia, Amaia ORCID; Ibáñez, Carlos; Basso, Andrea; Goiti Ugarte, Urtzi ORCID (Nature Research, 2022)
      [EN] Targeted molecular methods such as conventional PCR (cPCR) and quantitative PCR (qPCR), combined with species-specific primers and probes, are widely applied for pest species detection. Besides, the potential of qPCR ...

      New Adenovirus Groups in Western Palaearctic Bats 

      Iglesias Caballero, María; Juste, Javier; Vázquez Morón, Sonia; Falcon, Ana; Aznar López, Carolina; Ibáñez, Carlos; Pozo, Francisco; Ruiz, Guillermo; Berciano, Jose M.; Garín Atorrasagasti, Ignacio ORCID; Aiartza Azurtza, José Ramón ORCID; Echevarría, Juan E.; Casas, Inmaculada (MDPI, 2018-08)
      In the context of long-term screening for viruses on Western Palaearctic bats, we tested for the presence of adenovirus 1392 oropharyngeal swabs and 325 stool samples taken from 27 bat species. Adenoviruses were detected ...

      Novel Papillomaviruses in Free-Ranging Iberian Bats: No Virus-Host Co-evolution, No Strict Host Specificity, and Hints for Recombination 

      García Pérez, Raquel; Ibáñez, Carlos; Godínez, José M.; Aréchiga, Nidia; Garín Atorrasagasti, Ignacio ORCID; Pérez Suárez, Gonzalo; De Paz, Oscar; Juste, Javier; Echevarría, Juan E.; Bravo, Ignacio G. (Oxford University Press, 2014)
      Papillomaviruses (PVs) are widespread pathogens. However, the extent of PV infections in bats remains largely unknown. This work represents the first comprehensive study of PVs in Iberian bats. We identified four novel PVs ...
