Sensory Exotica A World Beyond Human Experience. Howard C. Hughes. MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 1999. 359 pp. $26.95, £16.95. ISBN 0-262-08279-9.

Writing for nonspecialists, Hughes offers an introduction to the interface between sensory psychology and animal behavior. His discussions of hearing and echolocation, orientation, electroreception, and pheromones combine anecdotes, history, and fairly in-depth accounts of current research.
