about

Bats are the only true flying mammals and account for about a quarter of all mammal species. This book covers many aspects of bat biology, including their evolutionary origins, roles in ecosystems, reproductive biology, foraging behaviour, hibernation, and genetics. The subject of fruiteating bats of the old world tropics are discussed. The coverage is international, and with contributors from nine countries the diversity of current bat research, as well as the diversity of the bats themselves, is evident.

Editorial Reviews

`'...this book is recommended to everybody who is interested in evolutionary, ecological, behavioural or conservation aspects, not just of bats but of mammals in general: I found it really stimulation to browse through the chapters and be inspired bu open questions, new facts, new ideas or newmethods, and to find at least enough references to be able to initatie a much more detailed literature search.''B.Konig, Zurich, J.Zool.Syst.Evol. Research 35 (1997) 151-152.
