About this title

Synopsis:

Bats are the most diverse group of Irish terrestrial mammals, with nine confirmed resident species. This is the first book dedicated entirely to these elusive creatures, published by Bat Conservation Ireland, a charity dedicated to the conservation of Ireland's bats that was formed in 2004. Irish Bats in the 21st Century 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 background to bat work in Ireland, as well as describing methods used for identifying and surveying for these protected species. These are followed by detailed species accounts that cover current population trends, distribution maps, roost selection, habitat types and available biometric data for Irish specimens. The final chapter summarises the many conservation threats faced by Irish bats and places these in the context of available trend information. Irish Bats in the 21st Century is an authoritative guide and reference, illustrated with colour photographs, and it is essential reading for any enthusiast of Irish wildlife.

Review:

An elegant, well illustrated and most accessible scientific review and species gallery. --Irish Times

So I had the chance to read your book from cover to cover and found it very interesting. I particularly like the fact that each of the accounts followed exactly the same format and so allowed a comparison of the status of the species and current knowledge of the species roosting ecology. Its actually a very useful baseline tool, as well as a good read and if we had the same here I'd use it regularly. --H. Andrews, UK-based ecological consultant

Enjoying my copy! Well written, beautifully laid out and lots of interesting info. Congratulations to everyone involved. --C. Heardman, Co. Cork
