Abstract

Comparative studies on echolocation in various species of bats reveal differences in the design of transmitters — i.e., the vocal systems producing different echolocation signals — as well as receivers — i.e., the auditory systems evaluating the echoes. Our hypothesis is that these differences reflect adaptations to the specific orientation tasks of each species.
