        Bats of the Southwest

        In this video segment from the Nevada Department of Wildlife, conservation educator Joe Doucette and wildlife biologist Jason Williams describe some of the physical characteristics and behaviors of several bat species that inhabit Nevada. The video explains that bats are largely responsible for controlling insect populations, with each bat capable of eating hundreds of bugs during its nighttime feeding. This, in turn, benefits agriculture. Bats also play an important role in pollination and seed dispersal.

        This media asset was adapted from The Nevada Department of Wildlife: "The Bats of the Southwest".
