  • Bats: A World of Science and Mystery
    Bats: A World of Science and Mystery by M. Brock Fenton, Nancy B. Simmons

    Presents these fascinating nocturnal creatures in a new light. Portrays bats in flight, feeding, and mating in views that show them in exceptional detail. Also take the reader into the roosts of bats, from caves and mines to the tents some bats build out of leaves. A comprehensive guide to what scientists know about the world of bats, the book begins with a look at bats' origins and evolution. Then goes on to address a host of questions related to flight, diet, habitat, reproduction, and social structure: Why do some bats live alone and others in large colonies? When do bats reproduce and care for their young? How has the ability to fly-unique among mammals-influenced bats' mating behaviour? A chapter on biosonar, or echolocation, takes readers through the system of high-pitched calls bats emit to navigate and catch prey. More than half of the world's bat species are either in decline or already considered endangered, and the book concludes with suggestions for what we can do to protect these species for future generations to benefit from and enjoy. Illustration type: Colour photographs, Halftones, Line drawings, 240pp. 2014
