Abstract

Echolocation is the biological sonar used by some higher vertebrates that make their lifes easier in the region in which they live. It mainly used for finding food but also for communication and getting the perception of the environment in which they live. They emit sound waves into the environment and receiving the echo create a picture of your surroundings in mind. To do this they had to and adapt in different ways as I stated in the chapters relating to particular species. In this seminar, I put emphasis on bats and dolphins (toothed whales) because their echolocation is most researched. In birds it is also much explored, but only a small number of species use it and it is difficult to study because these animals live in remote areas. But with shrews scientists have a lot of work because their use of echolocation we know at least.
