Bats of Saint Vincent, Peter and Roxanne Larsen

The publication, "Bats of Saint Vincent, Lesser Antilles," was published in a Special Publication of the Museum of Texas Tech University, October 2018 issue.

This Publication is the result of decades of natural history research focused on the bats of the Lesser Antilles. From a One Health perspective, a greater understanding of bat species diversity and evolution helps to prepare for and confront emerging zoonoses associated with bats (e.g., coronaviruses, rabies virus, and filoviruses).

This research will help to inform veterinarians and clinicians monitoring bat-related diseases throughout the Caribbean, northern South America, and the southern United States.
