For high-frequency cutofs in mammals, take a look at: Heffner RS, Koay G, Heffner HE. 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: Dooling, RJ Hearing in Birds in The Evolutionary Biology of Hearing, DB Webster, RR Fay and AN Popper eds. 1992 Springer-Verlag, New York pp 545-559. -------------------------------------------------------------------- David C.
