About this book

Language: French

This book on the acoustic ecology of bats of Europe takes stock of the knowledge acquired by the author in more than twenty years of working in the field of ultrasonic detection. As a nocturnal animal, bats have developed a spatial tracking system by using sonar. Inaudible to the human ear, the calls of bats can be collected, recorded and analyzed using different devices and software.

To the first type of approach, a purely auditory one, the author adds another dimension: identification by computer analysis of ultrasound. With detectors and computer analyses becoming increasingly powerful, the described methods will allow readers to identify up to 85% of acoustic contacts typically found in Europe, conduct inventories and undertake increasingly detailed studies without disturbing the animals. This book covers 34 of the 42 species of European bats.

The third edition has been translated into English as well.

Summary in French:
Animaux nocturnes, les chiroptères ont développé un système de repérage dans l’espace du type sonar. Inaudibles à l’oreille humaine, leurs cris peuvent être perçus, enregistrés et analysés grâce à différents appareils et logiciels.

Cet ouvrage dresse le bilan des connaissances acquises par l’auteur depuis plus de vingt ans en matière de détection ultrasonore. Aux premières approches, purement auditives, il ajoute une autre dimension: l’identification par l’analyse informatique des ultrasons. Grâce aux détecteurs de plus en plus performants et à l’analyse informatique, la méthode décrite permet d’identifier en Europe environ 85% des contacts acoustiques, de mener des inventaires et d’entreprendre des études toujours plus fines sans perturber les animaux. Ce livre traite 35 des 42 espèces de chauves-souris européennes.

Cette 3e édition en français a été traduite en anglais dans un volume séparé.
