My name is Carolina Santana. I am from Brazil, and I am a student of biological sciences.
I am starting my studies on bat gates. I researched some papers online, and I am having lot of difficulty to read or download it, I also cannot find the authors so I can contact them.

The documents are bellow:

White, D.H. and J.T. Seginak 1987.
Cave Gate Designs for Use in Protecting Endangered Bats. Pp.445-449, in Wildlife Society Bulletin.

Ludlow, M. and J. Gore 2000.
Effects of a Cave Gate on Emergence Patterns of Colonial Bats. Pp.191-196, in Wildlife Society Bulletin.

Tuttle, M.D. and D.A.R. Taylor 1998. Bats and Mines.

Does anyone have these documents and could send a PDF copy of them to me? It really would help a lot on my research!
Thank you in advance, guys!

Best regards,
