Behavioral Audiograms of Mammals

Below are links to the audiograms of mammals in tabular form, along with our comments. The data are taken either from the illustrated audiogram or, in the case of our audiograms, from the actual data.

When citing an audiogram, always cite the original paper, which means you must have a copy of that paper--you can obtain copies from a library or, in the case of our audiograms, request a reprint (email Henry.Heffner@utoledo.edu). For data not published elsewhere, cite this website and the date the information was obtained. We will be updating this list as time goes on.

You may link to this site, but please do not post this material on any other site.
