Can anyone point me to some good work that may shed light on the following questions: Do creatures that have traveling-wave mechanisms for hearing, hear better than those that use simple electromechanical resonant filters? For example, are the thresholds of hearing significantly higher in creatures that do not use traveling-wave mechanisms? -Thanks -Cheers Rahul
