This field guide to Australian bats provides general information on these fascinating animals: their evolution, why they hang upside down, roosting and reproduction, echolocation, and how to catch, survey and care for bats, including health hazards for carers. To assist in their identification the author has provided identification keys to the families and species, illustrating important features with line drawings and photographs where necessary. There is an account of each species with a detailed description, colour photograph, measurements, a distribution map and notes on where it lives, what it eats, and how it finds food and reproduces.
