Science Pubs Highlight Bat Research of Post Doc Leppanen

Christy Leppanen, a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, recently published a review that describes the scope in which invasive species threaten bats. The review summarizes the threats according to four categories: predation, disease, competition, and indirect interactions. Leppanen and her co-author identified threats of 37 invasive species to 40 bat species.

Several science publications highlighted the work including Science Daily, Phys.org, and Science Newsline.
