Knowledge of bat echolocation and social calls, and id utilizing ultrasonic ‘bat detectors’ and sound research software program, has grown considerably within the final decade. during this useful consultant Jon Russ and individuals (Kate Barlow, Philip Briggs & Sandie Sowler) current the most recent info in a transparent and concise manner.
The publication covers subject matters together with the houses of sound, how bats use sound, bat detectors and recording units, research software program, and phone research. for every species present in the British Isles, info is given on distribution, emergence instances, flight and foraging behaviour, habitat, echolocation calls together with parameters for universal measurements, and social calls. Calls are defined within the context of the various applied sciences hired to list them (heterodyne, frequency department and time expansion). quite a few sonograms for every species are displayed in BatSound and AnaLookW. A species echolocation consultant is included.
