Mammals and birds have independently developed different populations of sensory cells grouped across the width of their auditory papillae. Although in mammals there is clear evidence for disparate functions for the two hair-cell populations, the different anatomical pattern in birds has made comparisons difficult. In two species of birds, we have used single-fibre staining techniques to trace ...
