Southern Connecticut State University Biology Professor Miranda Dunbar will present a lecture on bats. According to Professor Dunbar, bats are especially important animals because they provide more ecosystem services than many other vertebrate species. “What we can’t see scares us, and bats, being nocturnal animals, aren’t often seen,” Dunbar says. “There are so many tall tales built around these animals, and so few of us who study bats to correct these myths. Let’s amend that.”
