    D M Higgs
    Department of Biological Sciences, University of Windsor, Windsor, ON, Canada N9B 3P4
    J Exp Biol 216:1484-90. 2013
    ..The results also suggest that in natural situations both the ear and lateral line likely play an integrative role in detecting and localising many types of 'acoustic' stimuli...

    Dennis M Higgs
    Department of Biology, University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742, USA
    J Acoust Soc Am 113:1145-54. 2003
    ..We propose a model for the development of zebrafish hearing wherein the Weberian ossicles gradually increase the range of frequencies available to the inner ear, much as middle ear development increases frequency range in mammals...

    D M Higgs
    Department of Biology, University of Windsor, Windsor, Ontario, N9B 3P4 Canada
    J Exp Biol 207:155-63. 2004
    ..Thus, it appears that ultrasound-detecting clupeiformes have undergone structural modification of the utricle that allows detection of ultrasonic stimulation...

    John U Ramcharitar
    Department of Biology and Neuroscience and Cognitive Science Program, University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742, USA
    J Acoust Soc Am 119:439-43. 2006
    ..There were, however, no significant interspecific differences in auditory sensitivity for stimuli between 200 and 700 Hz. These data support the hypothesis that the swim bladder can potentially expand the frequency range of detection...

    J Assoc Res Otolaryngol 3:174-84. 2002
    ..Moreover, crowding of zebrafish has a marked impact on the growth of the fish and on the addition of sensory cells to the ear. We also demonstrate that fish size, not age, is a better indicator of developmental state of zebrafish...
