Generous use of outstanding color photographs make Bats of Carlsbad Caverns National Park an exceptionally beautiful publication about the bats found within the National Park. It gives a factually accurate, comprehensive look at the park's 15 species, their biology, behavior, and how to identify them, while dispelling many common myths. With a look at the history of bats in Carlsbad Cavern, the value of resident bat populations is put in perspective with the need for conservation. Readers are referred to BCI for further information.
