COVER Mexican free-tailed bats roost at Bracken Cave near San Antonio, Texas. Streicker et al. (p. 676) describe how the spread of new forms of rabies virus is restricted between bat species; Frick et al. (p. 679) explain how a fungal disease of bats, white-nose syndrome, is likely to lead to local extinctions of once-common bat species. Photo: © Merlin D. Tuttle, Bat Conservation International,
