Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are used in wide variety of applications.
It consists of number of tiny sensor nodes which is operated on batteries.
These battery operated nodes are deployed over a long period of time
long to perform some specific task. Energy saving is major concern
part of such applications. Reducing power consumption is one of the
possible solution in WSN for longer lifetime. Communication is one of a
major source of power drain in such networks. Hence many researchers
all around the worldproposed energy efficient communication scheme
to save energy at transmitter as well as at receiver.In this paper, a
comparative review on such energy efficient communication schemesfor
