Bats are found throughout the world, and their 966 species represent one quarter of all mammals found on earth. This book describes all the bats and their natural history, with a unique emphasis on how the lives of bats exemplify processes and principles of broad biological relevance. No other book combines such comprehensive coverage with Altringham's blend of up-to-date scientific information and effective teaching skills. If you are serious about bats, this book is a must.

An excellent book - very readable but plenty of depth.
