haeckel's bats

The many faces of bats, in Ernst Heinrich Philipp August Haeckel’sKunstformen der Natur, 1899-1904.

If you are feeling particularly nerdy, we have 223 articles, books, and book chapters with “chiroptera” somewhere in them, residing in our digital repository.
Kunstformen der Natur, translated into Art Forms of Nature, is by all accounts a marvel of 19th century scientific illustration. See more in ourGalaxy of Images, or check out this exhibit on this work at the Marine Biological Laboratory.
