Bats Have a Vertical “Blind Spot” When Using Echolocation

Bats are well known for their sophisticated use of sound waves and echoes to navigate through areas riddled with obstacles, but now a new study reveals that their use of echolocation can be hindered in the face of smooth vertical surfaces. The results , published in the September 8 issue of Science, may help explain why injured or dead bats are often found near buildings.
