Halloween Theme: Bats in the Central Valley, Oh My!

Please join us Monday, October 7th for a discussion on the life history of bats and research that Dr. Joshua Reece and his students are doing on bat biology in the Central Valley and surrounding High Sierras.

Dr. Joshua Reece has been interested in ecology, evolution and conservation biology since he started college at the University of Central Florida. He has worked on marine turtles, moray eels, freshwater turtles, giant salamanders, hagfish, birds, venomous snakes, and now bats. His current research investigates basic unknowns in bat biology: which species are where, when and why? He will begin with a Halloween themed introduction to bats and their fantastic adaptations and then discuss echolocation, how bats respond to forest fires and changing weather patterns, and lastly, whether or not they like the Full Moon…….

Who: Dr. Joshua Reece, Assistant Professor of Biology at Fresno State

When: Monday, October 7, 2019 at 7PM

Where: Santa Fe Basque, 3110 N. Maroa Ave, Fresno, CA 93704
