Overview

The localization of sound is a fundamental requirement for all auditory
systems and has motivated much research. This comprehensive volume
brings together topics from many specialties that have been touched upon
in other volumes of the Springer Handbook of Auditory Research.
Reviewing sound source localization capacities and mechanisms in a
variety of organisms, this volume provides a synthesis and update on the
topic that is both original and timely. The authors treat sound source
localization in a comparative context with an emphasis on modeling and
computational mechanisms.

Popper is Professor in the Department of Biology and Co-Director of the Center for Comparative and Evolutionary Biology of Hearing at the University of Maryland, College Park. Richard R.
