This comprehensive introduction to the biology of bats offers a summary of the large body of information about bats that the scientific community has amassed over the years.

The book also features a thorough discussion of echolocation, a topic currently under intense scrutiny. With examples taken from European and neotropical species, as well as North American species, this useful volume documents what is currently known about this highly successful and fascinating order of mammals.
Contents include: Functional Anatomy and Locomotion; The Circulatory and Respiratory System; Heat and Water Balance; Diet, Digestion, and Energy Balance; Central Nervous System; Echolocation; Vision, Olfaction, and Taste; Reproduction and Development; Ecology; Phylogeny and Systematics; Index.

Media reviews

"First published in German, this fine translation makes a wealth of information more readily available to biologists. Reviews functional anatomy, circulatory and respiratory systems, diet and digestion, aerodynamics, central nervous system, echolocation, vision, olfaction, reproduction and development, ecology, phylogeny, systematics, and more. Unusually comprehensive in its presentation of information. Suggested references listed at the end of each chapter. Well-suited as a textbook." -- Northeastern Naturalist, 2000
