About this book

Language: English with bilingual preface and acknowledgements in English and Russian

The second, reworked and expanded edition of the 2003 Bats of Vietnam monograph by Borisenko & Kruskop. Ten years have passed since the publication of the first faunal reference on Vietnamese bats. Since then, researchers from Vietnam and other countries have published many studies in bat faunistics and taxonomy. A number of taxonomic revisions done outside Vietnam also contributed to the accumulation of knowledge about the Vietnamese fauna. The author and his fellow chiropterologists AV Borisenko and PV Morozov studied 12 new localities in the north and south of the country and added to the data on three previously studied sites. These expeditions resulted in many faunistic findings; three species were recorded in Vietnam for the first time and the known distribution ranges of many other were expanded significantly. Some of these results were published in Russian and international journals or reported in intemational conferences. Several taxa new to science were found, two of which were described as new species. Overall, the bat faunal list of Vietnam was expanded by nearly one-quarter- from 95 to 120; the taxonomic status of many named forms has been revised. As a result, it became imperative to prepare a completely revised taxonomic reference that would incorporate these new findings.
