About this book

The evolution of vertebrate hearing is of considerable interest in the hearing community. However, there has never been a volume that has focused on the palaeontological evidence for the evolution of hearing and the ear, especially from the perspective of some of the leading palaeontologists and evolutionary biologists in the world. Evolution of the Vertebrate Ear brings to the fore some of the most recent discoveries among fossil taxa, which have demonstrated the sort of detailed information that can be derived from the fossil record, illuminating the evolutionary pathways this sensory system has taken and the diversity it had achieved.
