Mammal work in the Middle East

In spring we completed some mammal work in the Middle East. Small mammal surveys produced some exciting species such as Tristram's Jird Meriones tristrami and Eastern Spiny Mouse Acomys dimidiatus whilst bat surveys produced an excellent range of arid species including Hemprich's Long-eared Bat Otonycteris hemprichii and Egyptian Tomb Bat Taphozous perforatus.
