The most up-to-date methods for surveying the species are explained, accompanied by case studies and practical tips on how to conserve and manage the barbastelle bat's roosting and foraging habitats.







A much-needed resource to help conservation planners and others support barbastelle bat conservation, it is an essential manual for land managers and developers, conservation managers, ecologists and ecological consultants, bat workers and bat groups, nature conservation agencies, other government agencies and departments, conservation NGOs, ecologists, zoologists and other researchers.
