Sensory biology: Tree mice use echolocation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review


A new study demonstrates that soft-furred tree mice orientate by using echolocation, emitting ultrasonic broadband chirps. Remarkable convergent evolution with distantly related bats and dolphins in ear bone morphology and sensory genes is evident.
