About this book

Hearing and Sound Communication in Amphibians is a compendium of the latest research on acoustic communication in these highly vocal vertebrates.  The chapters are written by experts currently investigating the physiology and behavior of amphibians both in the laboratory and in the field.  This integrated approach guides each chapter and provides a neuroethologically-driven and evolutionary basis for our understanding of acoustic communication and its underlying mechanisms.  The intended audience ranges from senior undergraduates to physiologists, zoologists, evolutionary biologists and communication
specialists.
