Abstract
The auditory and vestibular senses are important senses in vertebrates, yet their relative importance varies from class to class, and even within the various classes of vertebrates. This may be correlated to the differing demands imposed by the environment and life styles of the various vertebrates. Because the environmental and perceptual adaptations to sound and body equilibrium are so diverse among vertebrates, a comparative study of the vertebrate inner ear may enhance our comprehension of the human cochlea and vestibular organs; and indirectly further our knowledge on spatial disorientation. Very little information can be found in the literature regarding the inner ear in many of these species. TRUNCATED
