This volume presents a comprehensive overview of what is understood about the similarities and differences among mammals in their sense of hearing, and the structures of the ear that condition and transform sound wave-forms. The goal of each chapter is to present what is known about the diversity of hearing functions among mammals so that we may better understand the relationships between the structures of ears and the hearing abilities of the animals most closely related to humans. This book will be invaluable to researchers, students, and clinicians in auditory research.
