About the collection

The diversity of South American bats is as impressive and varied as the landscape. In its lowland forests, there are more bats than in any other part of the world. Bats play fundamental ecological roles in prey and predator, arthropod suppression, seed dispersal, pollination, material and nutrient distribution, and recycling. This Collection will cover any aspect related to biology, ecology, evolution and conservation of South American Chiropterans.

There are currently no articles in this collection.
