Summary: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. About the Editors: Arthur N. 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. Fay is Director of the Parmly Hearing Institute and Professor of Psychology at Loyola University of Chicago. .
