The Barbastelle Bat Conservation Handbook is a long-awaited guide to barbastelle bat ecology, behaviour, conservation management and threats, the first publication of its kind to draw together all of the scientific research on the barbastelle bat into one comprehensive volume.

The most up-to-date methods for surveying the species are explained, accompanied by case studies and practical tips on how to conserve and manage the barbastelle bat's roosting and foraging habitats.
