Although the study highlighted the molecular diversity of four endemic Philippine fruit

bats and the importance of DNA barcoding in species identification and classification, the

researchers believe that the study could still be improved by future researchers through

considering the following recommendations:

 Use of more robust genetic markers

 Obtain DNA through non-invasive techniques like collection of bat stool
 Include other pteropodid species especially the ones which are still understudied
 Formulate potential phylogenetic tree from the additional gathered information
 Coordinate with research institutes and conservation agencies to conduct protective
measures for monitoring status of fruit bats
 Engage community particularly near or located along biodiversity-rich areas with
conservation awareness and implement rules if needed.
