The lecture is about urban bats and why some species are more successful in cities than others. Furthermore the lecture will deal with the human-animal-nature-relationships in cities, with the question why an understanding of this is important to create a peaceful coexistence between humans and animals in cities.
If the weather permits, we will take a walk through Bolzano with bat detectors after the lecture. Those who are interested in this nocturnal bat exploration tour can download the following app on their smart/iPhone in advance:
