About the book:

This broadly based volume brings together the twenty-one papers presented at the Seventh International Bat Research Conference in Aberdeen in August 1985 on Flight, Echolocation and Social and Reproductive Biology. These areas of research have seen the most significant advances in recent years and new results are presented and analysed by leading international authorities. The volume includes piipets on the origin, aerodynamics and physiology of flight, on behavioural studies of echolocation including interactions between bats and insects, on narrow band frequency analysis by echolocating bats, on the genetic structure of social groups, alxruism and cooperation, on the energetics of reproduction, and on the activity of the hypothalamo-hypopbyseal-gonad axis in seasonally breeding bats. This volume will be of interest to all who are interested in bats as supreme examples of evolutionary adaptation.
