The Bat Scientists (Scientists in the Field) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dr. Merlin Tuttle and his colleagues at Bat Conservation International aren't scared of bats. These bat crusaders are fascinated by them, with good reason. Bats fly the night skies in nearly every part of the world, but they are the least studied of all mammals. As the major predator of night-flying insects, bats eat many pests. Unfortunately bats are facing many problems, including a terrifying new disease. White-nose Syndrome is infecting and killing millions of hibernating bats in North America. But Dr. Tuttle, with the help of his fellow bat scientists are in the trenches—and caves—on the front line of the fight to save their beloved bats.

Synopsis:

Bat scientist Dr. Merlin Tuttle and his colleagues at Bat Conservation International study these fascinating creatures of the night, in hopes of protecting them from a new disease called White-nose symdrome, which threatens many species very existence.

Synopsis:

A beautifully photographed Scientists in the Field entry about Craig George, son of childrenand#39;s author Jean Craighead George, and his life in Barrow, Alaska, as an arctic whale scientist and expert on the bowhead whale.

Synopsis:

As fascinating and informative as ever, this sequel to Jenkinsand#39; equally impressive Actual Size presents prehistoric creatures to lifesize proportions. Itand#39;s hard to imagine a six foot long millipede or a dinosaur even smaller than a chicken, but readers come face to face with these and many more in this outstanding nonfiction offering from a Caldecott Honor winner.

About the Author

Mary Kay Carson and Tom Uhlman met while working on a magazine article about breeding captive rhinos in 2001. Now they are married and live with their dog Ruby in a century-old house surrounded by deer, hawks, woodchucks, songbirds, and other creatures in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Tom Uhlman has been a freelance photographer for 25 years. He photographs lots of news and sporting events, but enjoys shooting pictures of wildlife and the natural world most of all. Visiting some of the most famous volcanos in the world and meeting the people who study them was a special treat. Tom's photographs can also be seen in upcoming Scientists in the Field book Park Scientists, and previously in Emi and the Rhino Scientist and The Bat Scientists
