|Abstract: ||1. The pulse-like clicking sounds made by odontocetes for echolocation (biosonar) can be roughly classified by their frequency characteristics into narrow-band high-frequency (NBHF) clicks with a sharp peak at around 130 kHz and wide-band (WB) clicks with a moderate peak at 30–100 kHz. Structural differences in the sound-producing organs between NBHF species and WB species have not been comprehensively discussed, nor has the formation of NBHF and WB clicks.
2. A review of the sound-producing organs, including the latest findings, could lead to a new hypothesis about the sound production mechanisms. In the current review, data on echolocation click characteristics and on the anatomical structure of the sound-producing organs were compared in 33 species (14 NBHF species and 19 WB species).
3. We review interspecific information on the characteristics of click frequencies and data from computed tomography scans and morphology of the sound-producing organs, accumulated in conventional studies. The morphology of several characteristic structures, such as the melon, the dense connective tissue over the melon (the ‘porpoise capsule’), and the vestibular sacs, was compared interspecifically.
4. Interspecific comparisons suggest that the presence or absence of the porpoise capsule is unlikely to affect echolocation frequency. Folded structures in the vestibular sacs, features that have been overlooked until now, are present in most species with NBHF sound production and not in WB species; the vestibular sacs are therefore likely to be important in determining echolocation click frequency characteristics. The acoustical properties of the shape of the melon and vestibular sacs are important topics for future investigations about the relationship between anatomical structure and sound-producing mechanisms for echolocation clicks.|
