Costs: 10 Euro admission for the one-day event (incl. coffeebreaks,free access to the lectures; lunch not included)
During this one-day public event, we will review the current understanding of how artifiicial light affects bats. Bats are legally protected in the E.U., yet they are highly susceptible towards artificial light because of their nocturnal lifestyle. During the symposium, some of the key experts in the E.U. will summarize their findings, particularly in relation to management recommendations. The one-day event will be followed by a 2-day workshop which is restricted to EUROBATS intersessional working group members.
Please contact Dr. Christian Voigt at firstname.lastname@example.org for information.

We wish to extend a cordial invitation to all colleagues and friends who ask the same question as we do: Are bats special? We already know that they are unique among mammals with respect to flight. Their echolocation calls are outstanding. Longevity of bats is higher than in most other similar-sized mammals. Bat immunology seems to be well adapted towards the fight against virulent pathogens. There are many things to be listed here. But why do bats seem to be special? Are they indeed special?
Join the 5th International Berlin Bat Meeting in February 2017.
The upcoming conference will ...
--> present the newest findings related to flight, echolocation, immunology, heterothermy, longevity, diversity and conservation of bats,
--> relate these disciplines to each other and
--> try to find an answer to the question: Are bats special?
