About this book

Language: French

The Swiss canton of Fribourg has 22 species of bats: amongst others pipistrelle bats, long-eared bats (genus Plecotus), and barbastelle bats (known as ratoluva in the local patois dialect). What do they look like? What is their secret to finding their way in the dark? Where do they spend their days? Why are they hiding in the depths of the caves?

For the first time, this book summarizes the knowledge gained from 30 years of observations and research on the bats of the canton of Fribourg with:
- Detailed monographs for each of the species of bats recorded
- A presentation of the hide-outs, the hunting grounds but also the threats that hover over the bats
- Numerous photos and distribution maps
- Stunning anecdotes ...

All this hitherto unpublished data make this work an excellent introduction for everyone curious about bats, and makes it an indispensable tool for naturalists.

Summary in French:
Le canton de Fribourg compte 22 espèces de chauves-souris: elles ont pour nom Pipistrelle, Oreillard, Barbastelle ou ratoluva en patois. A quoi ressemblent-elles? Quel est leur secret pour s’orienter dans l’obscurité? Où passent-elles leurs journées? Que font-elles cachées au fond des grottes?

Pour la première fois, un livre synthétise les connaissances issues de 30 ans d’observations et de recherches sur les chauves-souris du canton de Fribourg avec:
- Des monographies détaillées pour chacune des espèces de chauves-souris recensées
- Une présentation des gîtes, des terrains de chasse mais aussi des menaces qui planent sur les chauves-souris
- De nombreuses photos et des cartes de répartition
- Des anecdotes renversantes...

Tous ces éléments inédits font de cet ouvrage une excellente introduction pour tous les curieux de nature et un outil indispensable pour les naturalistes.
