Program: Rhythms of the Night: Using Bats as Monitors of Pollution in Baltimore City.
Bats use high frequency pulses, called echolocation to learn more about their environment. From hunting, navigation and communication, this secret language is incredibly important to many species of bats. However, there is still much to learn about bats in urban areas such as Baltimore and how echolocations are used across the cityscape. Join graduate student and researcher, Chris Blume, as he discusses his research on bats and their echolocation in Baltimore city. In-person and online.
