Author: Arthur M Greenhall; Uwe Schmidt, Dr.
Publisher: Boca Raton : CRC Press, 2018.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
A major problem with vampire bats is that whatever information exists is scattered throughout the literature or is not recorded. There are some excellent books on the ecology and biology of bats with very little on vampire bats. This volume fills that gap to provide an in-depth presentation of these unique animals.
