Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(3), 267. Reviews the book, The sensory world: An introduction to sensation and perception by Thomas L. Bennett (1978). This book describes both human and animal sensory systems from a comparative point of view. Topics considered range from the neural processes underlying perception to the evolution of perception as an adaptive process. The section on evolution and perception covers such topics as migration and homing in birds and fishes, communication in honeybees, and echolocation in various animals. The book is written at a very elementary level and is profusely illustrated. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
