Great way to start the year doing field work with great people at Barú field station in Costa Rica.
Great week in El Salvador at Colam, listening to interesting talks and sharing with 200 bat biologists from 18 Latin American countries.
Imran did a great job presenting his beaver project at Rice Creek Experience.
This week we went to the 47th North American Symposium on Bat Research (NASBR), in Knoxville, TN. Great talks, great people, lots of good connections for Cayla and Tenaja, who did a great job presenting their poster on behavioral responses associated with vocal behavior in Spix’s disc-winged bats. I also presented an oral paper on the effect of group phenotypic composition on foraging efficiency.
Cayla and Tenaja presented a poster at the SUNY Oswego Summer Research Symposium, on the research we did in Costa Rica this summer. Their poster was well received and they did a great job explaining the project.
It is with great pleasure that we present the third volume of the IUCN Bat Specialist Group Newsletter on Bats and Climate Change.

We have been in Costa Rica collecting metabolic rate data on Thyroptera with Gloriana Chaverri and Adarli Romero from Universidad de Costa Rica. Some kids from local schools came to learn about our research. It has been very productive and fun. Cayla and Tenaja are having a great time.
