To understand this relationship, Microchiroptera
, commonly known as microbats, serve as a valuable community to study, as there are many species in this order, each utilizing different parts of the environment both In urban and natural habitats, This study looks at the effects urbanization has on bat community structure in Queensland, Australia, located in the dry tropics.

Screening was extended to include AdVs described in microchiroptera
and megachiroptera bats (6,8,20).
To study rabies virus (RABV) prevalence and transmission in bat populations, we sampled 199 suborder Microchiroptera
bats (mostly from families Phyllostomidae [86.
We believe that the rare detection and isolation of viruses might be attributed to the fast natural degradation of bats of the suborder Microchiroptera
in comparison to that of other animal carcasses, most likely due to their extremely low weight (2-10 g).
