Description

Arguably biosonar is one of the 'eye-opening' discoveries about animal behavior and the auditory systems of echolocators are front and center in this story. Echolocation by bats has proven to be a virtual gold mine for colleagues studying neurobiology, while providing many rich examples of its impact on other areas of bats' lives. In this volume we briefly review the history of the topic (reminding readers of the 1995 Hearing by Bats). We use a chapter on new findings in the phylogeny of bats to put the information that follows in an evolutionary context.

This includes an examination of the possible roles of Prestin and FoxP2 genes and various anatomical features affecting bat vocalizations. We introduce recent work on the role of noseleafs, ears, and other facial components on the focusing of sound and collection of echoes.



Texte du rabat

            In Bat Bioacoustics we briefly review the history of  biosonar and echolocation (reminding readersof the 1995 Hearing by Bats).   Adaptations for biosonar make one ofthe most fascinating stories in neuroethology. The auditory systems, biosonar signals, and their central role in thebiology of bats are front and center in this story.  Echolocation by bats has proven to be avirtual gold mine for colleagues studying neurobiology, while providing manyrich examples of its impact on other areas of bats' lives. This volume is aimedat graduate students and postdoctoral investigators, as well as professionalsand academics.  It is intended tofunction as a high-profile and up-to-date reference work on bat bioacoustics.
