Ontogeny, functional ecology, and evolution of bats

Author: Rick A Adams; Scott C Pedersen
Publisher: London ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2000.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Ontogeny, Functional Ecology and Evolution of Bats explores the relationship between developmental processes and ultimate function in this highly specialised group of flighted mammals. As such it is an essential reference work not only for bat biologists, but also for all those working in ecology, developmental biology, evolution and systematics.
