Bats. Nature's nocturnal insect controllers


, : Bats. Nature's nocturnal insect controllers. Trees and Natural Resources 35(4): 8-11

The importance of insectivorous Chiroptera species in insect control is discussed in this article. A study in Victoria, Australia, found a total of 22 species, 20 of which were insectivorous. However, in general, 8-12 species occured in most areas.
