About this book

Introduction

            In Bat Bioacoustics we briefly review the history of  biosonar and echolocation (reminding readers of the 1995 Hearing by Bats).   Adaptations for biosonar make one of the most fascinating stories in neuroethology. The auditory systems, biosonar signals, and their central role in the biology of bats 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. This volume is aimed at graduate students and postdoctoral investigators, as well as professionals and academics.  It is intended to function as a high-profile and up-to-date reference work on bat bioacoustics.
