Two teams of animals, bats and odontocetes (toothed whales), have independently built the power to orient and notice prey via biosonar (echolocation). This energetic mechanism of orientation permits those animals to function below low mild stipulations. Biosonar is a conceptual assessment of what's recognized approximately biosonar in bats and odontocetes. Chapters are written via bat and odontocetes specialists, leading to collaborations that not just study facts on either animals, but in addition examine and distinction mechanisms. This booklet presents a different perception that may aid increase our realizing of biosonar in either animal teams.
