New publication: Irish bats in the 21st Century

By Niamh Roche, Tina Aughney, Mathieu Lundy and Ferdia Marnell

 

This book, published by Bat Conservation Ireland, summarises the considerable body of bat research and surveillance that has been undertaken in Ireland in the 21st Century, much of it by citizen scientists. Introductory chapters provide a background to bat work in Ireland, and methods for identifying and surveying bats. These chapters are followed by detailed species accounts that cover current population trends, distributions, roost selection, habitats and biometric data for Irish specimens. The final chapter summarises conservation threats faced by Irish bats and places these in the context of available trend information. This book is an authoritative guide and reference, illustrated with colour photographs, and it is essential reading for any enthusiast of Irish wildlife.
