About this book

The book is divided into four parts: biosonar, biological compasses, electroperception, and chemical communication. Although it is filled with fascinating descriptions of animal sensitivities - the sonar system of the bat, for example, rivals that of the most sophisticated human-made devices - the author's goal is to explain the anatomical and physiological principles that underlie them.

Media reviews
A charming and informative introduction to sensory realms beyond human experience. - Laurence A. Marshall, The Sciences; "The wondrous capabilities that Hughes discusses are only beginning to be understood... but the challenging questions could attract anyone with a sense of curiosity and skills in biology or information technology.... Sensory Exotica may inspire budding scientists to pursue this rich field of inquiry." - Science "...readers with an interest in animal biology will want to track this book down - even if they have to use sonar." - Publishers Weekly"
