  • Abstract The inner ear is a complex structure consisting of the vestibular and auditory systems. Across vertebrates, morphological variation in the inner ear provides a source of homologous features (characters) that may aid in resolving phylogenetic relationships. The morphology of the inner ear in extant frogs and salamanders is well known, and has been extensively studied from functional perspectives. However, the ability of its form and features to shed light on the broader question of… CONTINUE READING
