 Cover in Biotropica

My first cover in Biotropica! Great to see that specific picture that we took with Oriol Massana Valeriano around 3 years ago in the cover of such scientific journal. This issue includes a scientific paper about the forest fragmentation effects on bats according to their sex, and was led by my colleague Ricardo Rocha (Title: Does sex matter? Gender-specific responses to forest fragmentation in Neotropical bats?)

Project led by Christoph Meyer (University of Salford) and funded by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, from Portugal. More information here:

The same image was used for the cover of our new book: Field Guide to the bats of the Amazon, which will be soon released in paper, published by Pelagic Publishing.

Cover in Mammal Review

My first cover in Mammal Review! I am glad that the long nights trapping bats in Madagascar within our new project on Bats, Forests and Rice are being highlighted in other formats rather than scientific papers :)

Project led by the Global Change and Conservation group in the University of Helsinki (Mar Cabeza, Daniel Burgas, Ricardo Rocha, Álvaro Fernández-Llamazares, Zo Andriatafika, Santatra Andriamitandrina, Tafita Tojosoa Rakotoarimanana and many others!) More information here:


Bats, forests and rice

This video documents through photography an interdisciplinary research project on the bats of Madagascar by the Global Change and Conservation (GCC) group, from the University of Helsinki (Finland).
