Abstract

Pennsylvania has long been an active center of research on bats, and in recent years Pennsylvania biologists have played leading roles in responding to the emergence of wind turbines and White-nose Syndrome as major new threats to bats. This volume takes stock of the status of Pennsylvania’s bats at a time of conservation crisis. Chapters in the book describe the natural history of Pennsylvania’s bats, the history of bat research in the state, summarize long-term data on the state’s bats, assess the recent impacts of wind turbines and White-nose Syndrome on the state’s bats, and provide guidelines for future conservation efforts aimed at protecting and managing the state’s bats.
