S1 Table. List of bat species, families and foraging groups recorded from manual identifications
of a random subset of four sites (two nights each) per village, and the codes given
to species-groups defined for subsequent automated identification with minimal overlap
in call parameters using scans and filters in Analook v. 4.1t, 2015 (Titley Electronics, www.
hoarybat.com). Single asterisk denotes species which were identified very rarely using manual
identification but not detected from automated scans. Double asterisk denotes one species
which was not manually detected in the sub-sampled sites but detected unequivocally with the automated scans.
S2 Table. Proportion of total richness contributed by alpha and beta components for all
seven taxa based on individual- and sample-based partitioning respectively.
S1 Fig. Response of animal communities to three land use types: Croplands, settlements,
and rangelands in a rural landscape using two response variables, (a) abundance and (b)
richness. All values were standardized for comparison to represent standard deviations from
the mean. Whiskers represent the range, boxes the first and third quartiles, dark lines the
median and isolated circles are outliers.
S1 File. R-script and associated R output of PERMANOVA analyses for acousticallyobtained
(SM2 bat detectors, Wildlife Acoustics) abundance data for 13 species-groups of
bats using Bray-Curtis distance. Analyses were conducted in R using the ªveganº, ªcarº and
ªMASSº packages. Species group codes and foraging associations (open-air, clutter and clutter-
edge; Schoeman & Jacobs, 2008)) are explained in S1 Table.
