Re: cut-off frequency of mammals and non-mammals' hearing

For high-frequency cutofs in mammals, take a look at:

Audiograms of five species of rodents: implications for the evolution of
hearing and the perception of pitch. Hear Res 2001 Jul;157(1-2):138-52

You can find quite a bit of bird audiogram data in:
