The bats (order of Chiroptera) are the most unusual order in the class of mammals. Alongside birds, they are the only existent vertebrates that are capable of powered flight. Thanks to their ability to fly and echolocation as their way of orientation, they are the second largest specific group of mammals. Echolocation is one of the most specific ways of orientation and it demands numerous morphological, physiological and behavioural adaptations of sensory and motor systems. To understand the principle of echolocation it is necessary to know a lot about the physics of sound. In this work, I presented some of the fundamental divisions of bats based on echolocation. The main topic of this work is the way in which bats are dealing with interference from conspecifics and other sources while hunting for prey.
