Bats Of Ontario
by Toby J. Thorne
Bats are incredibly complex animals and are subject to folklore, and misunderstanding. Because of their nocturnal nature, they are very difficult to study. Ontario’s bats are under increasing pressure from habitat loss, White Nose Syndrome and wind turbines. Fortunately, there is an increasing interest in bats and we hope this book inspires naturalists, especially the young, to become involved with bats and their conservation. Full of information this book will appeal to amateurs and professionals alike to learn about these masters of the night.
Illustrated with the beautiful artwork of Fiona Reid and colour photographs, it shows all the bats of Ontario with identifying features, how to identify them using Bat Detectors, discussing threats and their conservation.
