Please help to solve a conservation problem related to the use of sticky traps which are designed for insects, yet which present a deadly trap for bats. Join the survey (only in German):
Hilf dabei ein Artenschutzproblem zu lösen. Klebefallen sollen lästige Insekten reduzieren, allerdings bleiben auch Fledermäuse daran kleben und verenden dort. Nimm an der Umfrage teil:
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?
