Do you think identifying bats in Europe or in North America is difficult? Well, try it in the Amazon. The planet’s green lung is home to the most diverse bat communities on the planet with more than 160 species currently described. Local species richness often surpasses 100 and for many, their identification in the field is, to say the least, challenging. Join researcher Ricardo Rocha as he shares stories from the three years of fieldwork that gave rise to the Field Guide to the Bats of the Amazon, a book aimed at facilitating species identification in the field.
