BATS OF ALBERTA provides an outstanding introduction to bats as they relate to people. it includes life history accounts for nine species of Canadian bats, most of which are commonly encountered in the United States as well. Sections on public health concerns and on control of unwanted bats are especially well balanced and useful anywhere in North America. This booklet is factually accurate, interestingly written, and is a resource that could be helpful to many public health professionals.
