Bats in the Gardens


Tiffin, HM, Bats in the Gardens, Mosaic, 38, (4 ) pp. 1-16. ISSN 0027-1276 (2005) [Refereed Article]


The nature/culture dichotomy finds uneasy meeting ground in the garden. But particularly in settler cultures, "the garden" introduces other unresolved dichotomies: indigenous and imported; wild and domesticated; pests and pets; traditional myth and scientific rationality. This essay considers these issues by focussing on the public debate over fruit bat colonies in the Melbourne (Australia) Botanical Gardens. ©Mosaic.
