The ability to detect objects in the environment by sensing echoes from them is more than just a functional tool to help visually-impaired people, shows a study.
When food is scarce, bats change their tactics and turn more flexible in their echolocation behaviour.
The natural ability in bats to navigate and track targets in the dark of night may help them develop a new and more effective radar or sonar system.
A European bat type can use the scatter patterns of sunlight to programme its internal compass for hunting after dark -- the first mammal known to do so, researchers said today.
Researchers have said that a fossilized whale skull found outside Charleston, South Carolina shows all the tell-tales signs that are related to echolocation.
Bats rule the night skies due to the power of echolocation or reflected sound which gives the mammals an evolutionary edge over other nocturnal species, a new study has found.
Scientists have found that there are certain genetic similarities between bats and dolphins and that the evolution of similar traits in different species.
Researchers have found that echolocation works better than eyesight, even under adequate light.
Blind and visually impaired people have the potential to use echolocation to determine the location of an object, according to new research.
Scientists have developed a new dolphin speaker device which they say could help one talk with these remarkably intelligent mammals.
Bats and toothed whales use surprisingly similar acoustic behaviour to locate, track, and capture prey using echolocation, the biological equivalent of sonar.
