Paperback - 272 pages from Oxford University Press (29 Jan 1998)

Beautifully illustrated!

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.
