Abstract

The structure of the peripheral auditory system of cetaceans and pinnipeds in post-natal ontogenisis is discussed in a number of detailed studies (Bogoslovskaya and Solntseva, 1979; Fraser, Purves, 1954; Fleischer, 1971, 1973; Pye, 1966; Ramprashad et. al, 1973; Ramprashad, 1975; Reysenbach de Haan, 1957; Yamada, 1953) of structures that evolved as an adaptive response for life in water and the use of echo-location. The lack of data in the available literature on the development of the peripheral auditory system of aquatic mammals in post-natal ontogenesis made it impossible to find answers to many important questions, in particular, the regularities of evolutionary transformations in the peripheral auditory system of mammals that belong to different ecological groups.
