For this study, a team of scientists used data on the world's vegetation, temperature, precipitation, cloud cover, and the vegetation requirements of the world's bat species to develop a map of their distributions in the early 1900s. After this, they compared the map to today's distributions of species.

Zoologist Robert Beyer from Cambridge University says: “Understanding how the global distribution of bat species has shifted as a result of climate change may be an important step in reconstructing the origin of the COVID-19 outbreak.”
