bonan matenon! (Esperanto if you where wondering)
Welcome back. Today Valeria Tavares (@ValeriaCTavares) is telling us the importance of natural history studies in science. She is guiding us through the wonderful paper by Santana et al (2011) about Micronycteris microtis. It's an interesting study that describes the diet range in terms of prey size and hardness. Let's get to it!
