Why are there bats that do not echolocate, and how has body size and morphology constrained or facilitated the evolution of sensory diversity in bats? In a collaborative paper in Nature Communications, we present a broad phylogenetic comparative analysis that illuminates the trade-offs between vision and echolocation during bat evolution. You can access the open-access paper here. Enjoy!
