Important Areas for Future Cetacean Auditory Study
We have now accumulated enough information on cetacean hearing to discover some anomalies, that is, experimental results that we do not understand as well as we would like to. Three of these anomalies will be discussed. In each case more data is necessary in order to clarify the question. Until this is accomplished, speculation as to the basis of the problems is of limited value.
