Last semester, Dr Zubaid gave the keynote address at UPM regarding the activities of the bat group at the local, regional and international levels. A number of people were impressed and said that it could be used as a model for forming groups to study other animal groups. As a consequence, the editorial board of the journal Malaysian Applied Biology asked us to put together a review of our activities. With help from Julie and Ain, we got something together for the December issue.

The lab had a great time this past week hosting Sigit Wiantoro and Alan Hitch from the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) and UC Davis. Sigit also gave a talk on Indonesian bats as part of the department’s Ecology, Evolution and Behavior Seminar series that was very well received.
