Description:

1st edition. The introduction summarizes the physical basis of biological sonar and gives an overview of the technologies used to convert ultrasound into audible frequencies. The identification criteria for 34 European bat species are given in detail, with an entire chapter devoted to the methodology of the acoustic study of their foraging habitats. This book focuses on the concept of acoustic ecology, illustrated with many examples. This concept explains how the acoustic behaviour of a bat sheds light on its flight environment, its activity, and even its diet, contributing in all cases to improving the reliability of species identification.

A DVD is included, which comprises over 300 sound sequences (in both heterodyne and x10 time expansion formats) collected from formally identified individuals flying in natural conditions. It also includes charts in .xls format for the identification of all bat species.
