Bio - Dr Les Hall
Les has been studying bats for over 45 years, first while employed by the CSIRO, Division of Wildlife Research, and more recently at the University of Queensland. Les co-authored the first field guide for Australian bats, Bats of Eastern Australia (Qld Museum), Australian Bats (Steve Parish Wildlife Guide) and the books Flying Foxes, Fruit and Blossom Bats of Australia (Uni of NSW Press) and recently A Natural History of Australian Bats (CSIRO Press). Field work for his research has taken him to many areas in Australia, Borneo, Southeast Asia and Central America. Les has been on many boards and committees dealing with flying-fox management and was closely involved with research on the emergence of Hendra and Australian Bat Lyssavirus.
