About this book

The study of how fish make and respond to sound has important implications for communication, physiology, behavior, and commercial techniques. Fish Bioacoustics, a new definitive volume on fish auditory systems, will interest investigators in both basic research of fish bioacoustics as well as investigators in applied aspects of fisheries and resource management. Topics cover structure, physiology, localization, and acoustic behavior as well as more applied topics such as using sound to detect and locate fish.

  • Introduction to Fish Bioacoustics Richard R. Fay, Arthur N. Popper, and Jacqueline F. Webb
  • Hearing and Acoustic Behavior (Basic and Applied) Arthur N. Popper and Carl R. Schilt
  • Structures and Functions of the Auditory Nervous System of Fishes Richard R. Fay and Peggy L. Edds-Walton
  • Evolution of Peripheral Mechanisms for the Enhancement of Sound Reception Christopher B. Braun and Terry Grande
  • Bioacoustics and the Lateral Line of Fishes Jacqueline F. Webb, John Montgomery, and Joachim Mogdans
  • Orientation to Auditory and Lateral Line Stimuli Olav Sand and Horst Bleckmann
  • Multipole Mechanisms for Directional Hearing in Fish Peter H. Rogers and David G. Zeddies
  • Vocal-Acoustic Communication: From Neurons to Behavior Andrew H. Bass and Friedrich Ladich
