ETI CD - Bats of the Indian Subcontinent
Entry ID: ETI_Bats

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This CD-ROM contains a first treatise on all 119 species of bat
currently known from the Indian Subcontinent, published by ETI and the
Harrison Institute (UK). The geographical scope includes India,
Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and the
Maldives. Extralimital localities from Afghanistan, northern Myanmar
and Tibet are also mapped. With over a thousand illustrations,
drawings and video, the CD-ROM seeks to give a detailed understanding
of the morphology, variability, geographical distribution, biology,
ecology and conservation status of each of the species. Three
different illustrated computer aided keys facilitate the
identification of the species. Fully updated distributions maps are
stored in an interactive geographic information system included in
this software. All text is hyperlinked: an illustrated glossary
defines specific scientific terms. All principle literature references
for this group are included in this program. The bibliography includes
over 600 references from journals and books published throughout the
world. A gazetteer is added (with illustrations) to specify almost
1400 localities mentioned in the text. With 8 families and 37 genera,
the Indian Subcontinent includes species that are not only endemic to
the region but also to those that are familiar to bat workers
throughout the Old World.

This CD-ROM makes an excellent introduction to the Indian Bats and
belongs in any modern scientific library.
