Series: Animal Science, Issues and Research
BISAC: SCI070010

In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the phylogeny and evolutionary insights, conservation strategies and role in disease transmission in bats. Topics discussed in this compilation include the role of bats in lyssavirus epidemiology; implications for ecological cognitive psychology of human-bat-interactions ; molecular phylogeography and conservation of Chinese Bats; and effects of climate change on the world’s northernmost bat population.
