Quite simply the definitive work on identifying bats from their calls. Up to date with all the latest research on bat calls this is an essential for anyone analysing bat calls for consultancy or scientific purposes.
It starts with excellent and readable chapters on the physics of sound and how bats generate ultrasound and use it to interpret the world around them. There is good information on the different types of bat detector and how they pick up the bat sounds to make them audible or for recording purposes.
Finally there is a really good section on each bat describing its range and ecology.
Illustrated throughout with colour sonograms and Analook outputs to enable easy comparison with results obtained in the field.
