About this book
Brings together a comprehensive overview of the reproductive biology of bats, giving an in-depth review of the literature and concepts regarding chiropteran reproduction and providing a powerful database for future research. The authors present past, current and new data in their reviews as well as suggesting productive areas for continued investigation.
Elizabeth G. Crichton's lifetime fascination with the reproduction processes in bats is reflected in her many publications which describe the chronology of cycles in many North American and Australian species and also address the physiology of selected unique adaptations such as delayed implantation, delayed development and sperm storage. She is currently the Reproductive Physiology Lab Manager at the Center for Conservation and Research, Omaha's Henry Doorly Zooin Nebraska. Philip H. Krutzsch is Professor Emeritus, Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy at the University of Arizona College of Medicine. He is known for his investigations and publications on many aspects of the reproductive biology of bats with particular emphasis on the anatomy and physiology of the male and on sperm storage.

An excellent reference for those interested in bat biology. - ETHOLOGY (January 2002) "...the depth of treatment in most chapters is astounding...and I think most behaviourists, particularly those who study sperm competition would benefit from reading much of the material presented here." -D.J. Hosken, Zoology Museum, University of Zurich-Irchel, in ANIMAL BEHAVIOR (2001).
