Linear features can benefit wildlife by assisting animal movement. We captured bats along barbed-wire and live-tree fences connecting tropical dry forest patches in Nicaragua. Bat species richness and captures were higher along live fences but we noted differences in sex ratios, richness, and species composition compared to surrounding natural forests.
