Organs of hearing and equilibrium during ontogenesis of mammals

Organs of hearing and equilibrium during ontogenesis of mammals The peripheral part of acoustic analyzer was studied during pre-and postnatal development of mammals. The main trends of structural evolution of the outer, middle, and inner ear were followed in representatives of different ecological groups during postnatal development. The use of ecologomorphological approach made it possible to establish that specific structural features of the hearing organ in different mammals are determined by adaptation to specific acoustic properties of the environment. It was shown that morphofunctional adaptations directed at optimization of acoustic sensitivity in different environmental conditions were leading in the hearing organ evolution. Comparative-embryological studies of the peripheral part of acoustic system made it possible to determine the stages of formation of individual structures and establish general patterns of prenatal development of the organs of hearing and equilibrium in different mammals.
