Video from Science on bat jamming
Why care about these animals? Because they are fascinating, coevolved creatures using sound in some of the most sophisticated ways known to occur in nature.
You can learn about sonar-jamming at the Research page and you can download many of my publications.
I've also posted several images and videos, including a clip that I helped film for the recent National Geographic series, Untamed Americas. I am happy to provide multimedia for educators, journalists, etc..., but please request permission before using materials from this site.
