  1. 1. Neurons against Noise : Neural adaptations for dim light vision in hawkmoths

    Författare :Anna Stöckl; Funktionell zoologi; []
    Nyckelord :vision; insect; hawkmoth; motion vision; spatial and temporal summation; dim light; neural processing;

    Sammanfattning : All animals perceive the world through their senses, which form the basis for their decisions and motor actions. However, when these all-important senses reach their limit and cease to provide reliable information, the animal’s survival is threatened. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Flower Cues for Hawkmoths: Colour, Place and Odour

    Författare :Anna Balkenius; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Zoologi; Zoology; olfaction; vision; learning; multimodal; Macroglossum stellatarum; Hawkmoth; Deilephila elpenor;

    Sammanfattning : Flowers use different cues to attract pollinators including colour and odour. How do hawkmoths use these cues to find the flowers? This question was investigated in two species of hawkmoth, the diurnal species, Macroglossum stellatarum, and the nocturnal species, Deilephila elpenor. Both species have colour vision and D.

  3. 3. Power and Wake Dynamics of Hawkmoth Flight

    Författare :Kajsa Warfvinge; Evolutionär ekologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Insect flight; Aerodynamics; Wind tunnel; Particle Image Velocimetry PIV .; tomo-PIV; Power; Manduca sexta; Macroglossum stellatarum; Hawkmoth;

    Sammanfattning : Aerodynamic theory states that the power required to fly is related to flight speed with a ∪-shaped curve. This has been shown in vertebrates, but insects have been proposed to have a flat, or J-shaped power curve. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Diversity and Limits of Colour Vision in Terrestrial Vertebrates

    Författare :Lina Roth; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Reptiles; Dim light vision; Colour vision; Camera-type eyes; Vertebrates; Mammals; Geckos; Horses;

    Sammanfattning : Most terrestrial vertebrates have colour vision, some perceive a less colourful world and others actually discriminate a wider colour spectrum than humans do. Still, we can all make use of the valuable colour information, which is more rigid than just brightness. LÄS MER
