This title, published with support from the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI), includes chapters on the evolution, biogeography, ecology and echolocation of bats, and provides accounts for the 116 bat species known to occur in southern and central Africa. The identification of families, genera and species is aided by character matrices. The species accounts provide descriptions, measurements, and diagnostic characters, as well as detailed information on the distribution, habitat, roosting habits, foraging ecology, and reproduction of each species. Photographs of the bats, including their skulls and dentition, and accurate time-expanded echolocation call spectrograms illustrate the accounts.

Ara Monadjem, Peter John Taylor, Woody Cotterill. Several years in the making, this book is due to be co-published by Wits University Press and the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) in early 2010 as a full-colour book including colour plates of bats, skull photographs, and spectrograms of bat echolocation calls. Full-colour distribution maps comprise the core of the book, and these accurate point maps (with modeled potential ranges overlaid) illustrate the distribution of 102 species of bats throughout south-central Africa. Previous works provided only shaded range maps.
