dc.description.abstract "A revision of the species of bats (Chiroptera) occurring in the Republic of the Sudan (the former Anglo-Egyptian Sudan) is presented. Sixty-six species are definitely recognized as occurring within the boundaries of the country, whereas some 38 others are known from nearby areas and may cross its borders. All eight of the widespread Old World families are represented. Most of the Sudan lies within the Ethiopian region but a relatively small area in the north is best allocated to the arid southwestern Palearctic. The bat fauna is grouped into nine ecogeographical categories (forest, forest-savanna, savanna, east African, desert, savanna-Palearctic, desert-Palearctic, Palearctic, and unclassified), and the Sudanese distribution of the species in each category is summarized. A number of interesting taxonomic problems are discussed, but the final resolution of most of them will involve analysis outside the Sudan"--P. 355. en_US

  • Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History
    The Bulletin, published continuously since 1881, consists of longer monographic volumes in the field of natural sciences relating to zoology, paleontology, and geology. Current numbers are published at irregular intervals. The Bulletin was originally a place to publish short papers, while longer works appeared in the Memoirs. However, in the 1920s, the Memoirs ceased and the Bulletin series began publishing longer papers. A new series, the Novitates , published short papers describing new forms.
