  1. 1. Ecologie sensorielle des rapaces : vision et olfaction

    Författare :Simon Potier; University of Montpellier; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Vision; olfaction; foraging ecology; Raptors;

    Sammanfattning : The vision is certainly the most developed sense in raptors, and these birds are cosidered as the vertebrates with the greatest visual acuity. However, raptors are among the most frequent victims of collisions with wind turbines and other human features. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Spatial vision in diverse invertebrates

    Författare :John Kirwan; Funktionell zoologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; vision; visual ecology; invertebrates; spatial resolution; behaviour;

    Sammanfattning : Light-detection provides incomparabaly rapid information at a range of time scales and, consequently, directional photoreception is found in almost every major metazoan clade. Conversely, a much smaller cohort have evolved sophisticated high resolution vision, which facillitates complex tasks via the detection of fast or small objects,. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Adaptations for nocturnal vision in insect apposition eyes

    Författare :Birgit Greiner; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; temporal and spatial summation; optical and neural adaptations; theoretical modelling.; Djurs anatomi och morfologi; Zoologi; dim light; vision; landmark navigation; nocturnal bees and wasps; Zoology; Animal anatomy; animal morphology;

    Sammanfattning : Due to our own preference for bright light, we tend to forget that many insects are active in very dim light. The reasons for nocturnal activity are most easily seen in tropical areas of the world, where animals face severe competition for food and nocturnal insects are able to forage in a climate of reduced competition and predation.

  4. 4. Spatial Vision in Birds: Anatomical investigation of spatial resolving power

    Författare :Mindaugas Mitkus; Funktionell zoologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Raptors; Seabirds; Parrots; Birds; Double cones; Development; Retinal ganglion cells; Visual spatial resolution; Visual ecology; Vision;

    Sammanfattning : Avian eyes are big both in relative and absolute terms, thus the importance of vision to birds is obvious. Even though the general eye plan is rather conservative throughout the group, there is a great variation in visual capabilities. LÄS MER

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

    Författare :Lina Roth; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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
