    ABSTRACT: "This unusual book bridges the fields of biology, physics, and psychology in its discussion of acoustic orientation in the animal world and its significance for man. Here is the up-to-date information on bats, their natural history, biological nature, and flying skill, along with the adventures of their observers, presented as matter of import to man today because the brain of a bat 'is the end result of eons of evolutionary refinement for the process of echolocation' while we who also try to fly and to see in the dark have the brains 'of large ground apes with stereoscopic vision and limbs designed for walking and climbing.' " 467-item bibliography. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
