VOLUME 10, NO. 4 Winter 1992


Several members wrote to point out the typesetting error in the article, "Bracken Cave: A Priceless Resource," which was published in the last issue of BATS. We said that the bats of Bracken consume some "250 million tons of insects" each night. Bats are prodigious consumers of insects, but even they couldn't manage what would amount to about 12 and a half tons each! What we meant to say was "250 tons of insects," translating to about a half million pounds (as stated in the photo caption)--still an impressive quantity. As careful as we try to be, we'll be even more vigilant with our proofreading in the future.
