Hearing and Sound Communication in Amphibians
As models for vertebrate auditory systems, amphibians have been the source of extensive, ground-breaking research on hearing, the nervous system and acoustic communication. This comprehensive review covers key issues in amphibian hearing and communication in depth. Topics are relevant to auditory research, neuroethology, herpetology, animal behavior and bioacoustics.
Presents the latest research on acoustic communication in these highly vocal vertebratesContributions are both laboratory and field-orientedOffers a neuroethologically-driven and evolutionary basis for understanding acoustic communication in amphibians
