About this book

Language: French

Bats find their way around by echolocation to fly in the most perfect darkness. Even if these acoustic emissions are inaudible to us, they can be studied quite easily by appropriate means (recorders that display sonograms).

Michel Barataud has acquired unique knowledge and skills during more than three decades of continuous research into sound signals from bats, not only in Europe but also in Guyana and the Lesser Antilles. Drawing on his personal field experience and his ability to make the most of technological advances, he has developed an effective identification method and disseminated his results through a large number of publications. A dedicated teacher, he has trained several hundred bat enthusiasts in ultrasound analysis and has developed an extensive network of naturalists. In this book, he presents his methods of computer-assisted signal analysis to complement the auditory approach that he initially developed in France. Yves Tupinier is a pioneer of bioacoustics and a lifelong friend. His contribution to this book is a valuable addition.

Summary in French:
Les chauves-souris se repèrent par écholocation pour voler dans l’obscurité la plus parfaite. Même si ces émissions acoustiques nous sont inaudibles, elles peuvent être étudiées assez facilement par des moyens appropriés (enregistreur, dispositif de visualisation des sonogrammes).

Michel Barataud a acquis des connaissances et des compétences uniques au cours de plus de trois décennies de recherche continue sur les signaux sonores des chauves-souris, non seulement en Europe mais aussi en Guyane et dans les Petites Antilles. Fort de son expérience personnelle de terrain et de sa capacité à tirer le meilleur parti des avancées technologiques, il a développé une méthode d’identification efficace et diffusé ses résultats à travers un grand nombre de publications. Enseignant dévoué, il a formé plusieurs centaines de passionnés de chauves-souris à l’analyse par ultrasons et a développé un vaste réseau de naturalistes. Dans ce livre, il présente les méthodes d’analyse des signaux assistée par ordinateur pour compléter l’approche auditive qu’il a initialement développée en France. Yves Tupinier est un pionnier de la bioacoustique et un ami de toujours. Sa contribution à ce livre est un ajout précieux.
