Bat Evolution, Ecology, and Conservation

Recent advances in the study of bats have changed the way we understand this illusive group of mammals. This volume consist of 25 chapters and 57 authors from around the globe all writing on the most recent finding on the evolution, ecology and conservation of bats. The chapters in this book are not intended to be exhaustive literature reviews, but instead extended manuscripts that bring new and fresh perspectives. Many chapters consist of previously unpublished data and are repetitive of new insights and understanding in bat evolution, ecology and conservation. All chapters were peer-reviewed and revised by the authors. Many of the chapters are multi-authored to provide comprehensive and authoritative coverage of the topics.

As every graduate student knows, one big part of the work is to read LOTS of material related to your chosen subject, and then digest it so that you can reframe it to inform your own work. In fact, publishing research and then citing relevant parts is the nuts and bolts of how science progresses. I was fortunate enough to be able to turn my review of the literature on bat migration into a book chapter. The book, Bat Evolution, Ecology, and Conservation, edited byRick Adams and Scott Pedersen, was recently published by Springer. One down side of publishing in a book is that although the chapters are peer-reviewed, they are often not included in online search tools such as Web of Science. Another disadvantage is that books like this tend to be ridiculously expensive, although most authors don’t get compensation for their work. However, the table of contents reads like a who’s-who of the bat world, and I’m so excited to be included in that list!
