Bats – winged creatures that hunt in the night. For some, it’s the stuff of nightmares.
But for new U of T Mississauga professor John Ratcliffe, bats are one of nature’s wonders.
Ratcliffe, a former PhD student at U of T Mississauga, has traveled the world to further the study of bats and echolocation. His research in the neuroethology and ecology of echolocating bats has led him to the tropics of Central and South America, parts of Africa and India, and islands in the south Pacific.
