It includes scientific and common names, as well as the number and distribution of species, measurements and physical traits, habitat, daily and seasonal activity, population dynamics, home range, social life, reproduction, and longevity.

Textual summaries present accurate, well-documented descriptions of the physical characteristics and living habits of bats in every part of the world. Endangered species and those having singular economic importance are given particular attention.Through five highly praised editions Walkers Mammals of the World has remained the most comprehensive—the preeminent—reference work on mammals.

Now for the first time a single large segment of that encyclopedic work—the section on Chiroptera, or bats—is available in paperback as a separate volume. Lavishly illustrated with pictures by noted wildlife photographers, the book includes photographs of many rarely seen bats.

As in the complete Walkers Mammals, most photographic illustrations depictlive animals rather than skins or skeletons.Since publication of the first edition in 1964, Walkers Mammals of the World has become a favorite guide to the natural world for general readers and an invaluable reference for professionals. Now Walkers Bats makes a significant portion of that work accessible to a new audience
