Summary 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. A History of the Study of Echolocation by Alan D. Grinnell, Edwin Gould, and M. Brock Fenton Phylogeny, Genes, and Hearing - Implications for the Evolution of Echolocation in Bats by Emma C. Teeling, Gareth Jones, and Stephen J.

Moss Perspectives and Challenges for Future Research in Bat Hearing by Lutz Wiegrebe, Alan D. Grinnell, and M. Brock Fenton About the Editors: M. Brock Fenton is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Biology at Western University. Alan D. Grinnell is Distinguished Professor of Integrative Biology and Physiology at the University of California, Los Angeles Arthur N. Popper is Professor Emeritus and Research Professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Maryland, College Park. Richard R. Fay is Distinguished Research Professor of Psychology at Loyola University Chicago. About the Series: The Springer Handbook of Auditory Research presents a series of synthetic reviews of fundamental topics dealing with auditory systems. Each volume is independent and authoritative; taken as a set, this series is the definitive resource in the field.
