Training the next generation of bat researchers

With so many conservation  issues challenging bat populations around the world, it is critical to train the next generation of bat researchers in the skills and abilities needed to study bats effectively. ISU Bat Center graduate student Vanessa Rojas is training undergraduate Alexis Bender to deploy a passive acoustic detector for bat surveys in northeast Tennessee. Alexis is conducting her own independent research project this summer, gathering acoustic data via driving transects to better understand the distribution of bats in this region. She and several other undergraduate students are getting their first exposure to bats on a Bat Center project this season.
