Forget the garlic necklace -- learn more about bats and rabies
Date:8/20/2009

A new book demystifies bats and eliminates many myths surrounding rabies and other related infections. Bat Rabies and Other Lyssavirus Infections, combines current science about bat rabies with rich illustrations and personal stories from the field. The author, Denny G. Constantine, is widely considered one of the world's foremost authorities on rabies.

Bat Rabies is intended for scientists and the general public. Dr. Constantine presents the material in a simple, straightforward manner that serves both audiences. The book, prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey National Wildlife Health Center, was published with the goal of increasing public understanding of rabies and the often misunderstood bat, and providing a balanced perspective on the risk of bat rabies to people.

Bat Rabies describes the worldwide occurrence of rabies in bats, its origins, how it spreads, and the degree of threat it poses to people, pets, farm animals, and wildlife. The book offers readers an overview of the virus variants that cause bat rabies and geographical patterns of occurrence.

"This publication on the relationship between bat ecology and disease, particularly that caused by rabies virus variants, is accessible to scientific and non-technical audiences," said David Blehert, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) microbiologist and editor of the publication. "Dr. Constantine has included many striking photos of bats in flight that he has taken during his many years of studying bats."

"The book comes at a time when public interest in bats is increasing because of the threat to bats from white-nose syndrome. Readers can learn more about the role diseases play in the ecology of these diverse and fascinating mammals," said Blehert, who is investigating the emergence and causes of bat white-nose syndrome at the USG
