Recent advances in the study of bats have changed the way we understand this illusive group of mammals. This volume consist of 25 chapters and 57 authors from around the globe all writing on the most recent finding on the evolution, ecology and conservation of bats. The chapters are not intended to be exhaustive literature reviews, but instead extended manuscripts that bring new and fresh perspectives. Many chapters consist of previously unpublished data and are repetitive of new insights and understanding in bat evolution, ecology and conservation. New perspectives are provided on many aspects of bat biology, evolution, morphology, development, natural history, cognition and behavior, emotions, formation flight, migration, dispersal to islands, emerging viruses, white-nose syndrome, speciation, bats and the human dimension, educational and conservation challenges, global monitoring, economic value, and the state of global bat populations. This book will be of interest to students, professional biologists, wildlife managers, conservationists, educators, environmental consultant, and anyone else interested in the broad and rich array of topics brought to date in this volume.
Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera. Bats are more manoeuvrable than birds , flying with their very long spread-out digits covered with a thin membrane or patagium. The largest bats are the flying foxes and the giant golden-crowned flying fox , Acerodon jubatus , which can weigh 1. These were traditionally divided into two suborders: the largely fruit-eating megabats , and the echolocating microbats. But more recent evidence has supported dividing the order into Yinpterochiroptera and Yangochiroptera , with megabats as members of the former along with several species of microbats. Many bats are insectivores , and most of the rest are frugivores fruit-eaters or nectarivores nectar-eaters. A few species feed on animals other than insects; for example, the vampire bats feed on blood.

Bats are highly charismatic and popular animals that are not only fascinating in their own right, but illustrate most of the topical and important concepts and issues in mammalian biology. This book covers the key aspects of bat biology, including evolution, flight, echolocation, hibernation, reproduction, feeding and roosting ecology, social behaviour, migration, population and community ecology, biogeography, and conservation. This new edition is fully updated and greatly expanded throughout, maintaining the depth and scientific rigour of the first edition. It is beautifully illustrated with

Какие-то проблемы? - спросил лейтенант. - Да, - сказал Беккер. - Мы кое-что упустили. ГЛАВА 13 Токуген Нуматака стоял у окна своего роскошного кабинета на верхнем этаже небоскреба и разглядывал завораживающие очертания Токио на фоне ярко-синего неба. Служащие и конкуренты называли Нуматаку акута саме - смертоносной акулой.

Стол, накрытый стеклом, и черный кожаный стул были расположены прямо перед громадным венецианским окном. Три шкафа-картотеки стояли в углу рядом с маленьким столиком с французской кофеваркой.
