Disappearing Species: First Honeybees, Now Bats?

In a story reminiscent of the honeybee crisis, biologists say that bat populations may be disappearing, hinting at climate change impacts and damage to ecosystems. In an article for The Online Newshour, Jenny Marder reported on the alarming number of deaths among these insect predators:

“Bats are dying at an alarming rate in the Northeast, and wildlife biologists fear the outbreak could lead to the extinction of the already endangered Indiana bat… Of the roughly 500,000 bats hibernating in the caves affected by the syndrome, Scott Darling, a bat biologist with the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department, estimates that the fatality rate has exceeded 90 percent. And he fears the toll is rising.”
