BATS IN FORESTS: Conservation and Management
Michael. Lacki, John Hayes, Allen Kurta; forward by Merlin Tuttle.  Over half of the forty-five (45) bat species in North America depend on forests for all or part of the year.  Recently, it has become more evident that bat conservation and management are strongly linked to the health of forests within their range.  As a result, management plans and silvicultural practices have been altered to better accommodate bat species.  Bats in Forests presents the work of a variety of experts who address many aspects of the ecology and conservation of bats.  Discusses: bat behavior as it relates to forests; the important role bats play in the ecology of forests; forest management and its influence on bat habitat on both public lands and privately owned forests, and; techniques for monitoring bat populations and activity.  A valuable, well-referenced work for anyone interested in bat biology, ecology, conservation, forestry, and land management. 7 x 10, 352p, 2 color illustrations, 32 b&w photos, 12 line drawings, 2007.
