Bats in British Columbia (brochure) Sarell, Michael
1994
A

Abstract: This brochure provides facts and information about bats in B.C. Several myths and fears about these vulnerable and fascinating creatures are dispelled. Bats constitute nearly 1/4 of the known mammal species and occupy every habitat type except for the polar regions. These nocturnal furry mammals perform invaluable ecological roles: pollinating flowers, dispersing fruit seeds and, in their role as predators, keeping insect populations in check. Bats are the only true flying mammals. The majority of species have tropical homes. 20 species inhabit Canada, 16 species live in B.C. Bat biology, ecology, behaviour (some hibernate through the cold season), habitat, and status. Many bats species are at risk - the primary threat is human activity. Tips about bat/human encounters, bat watching, rabies, and summer and winter roost habitats is included. Plans for a bat house are also in the brochure.
