Title: University of Bristol: Bat Ecology and Bioacoustics Lab
Url: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/biology/research/behaviour/batlab/
Publisher: University of Bristol
Description: The Bat Ecology and Bioacoustics Lab at the University of Bristol, conducts research on the "ecology, behavior, and conservation biology of bats." On the site, visitors can view their publications, several online guides to bats, and a useful list of links to all things bat. Educators will appreciate the "Interactive biosonar site," developed to teach "seeing with sound." The interactive includes three chapters of games, exercises, and activities to help students learn more about biosonar. In addition, in the "Downloads" area, visitors can find the recordings of the calls of 15 species of bats found in Britain. The calls are time-expanded recordings so that they are detectable to the human ear. To download the files, visitors must open them with a sound analysis program such as Gram (program link provided). Otherwise, a selection of calls for each species may be heard using any program that recognizes WAV files. The site also provides a text file describing in detail how the echolocation calls were recorded.
