Overview

This is a comprehensive account of all known types of animal eyes. Taking diversity of optical mechanisms as a framework, it also discusses aspects of structure and function of eyes, including visual ecology, design philosophy, properties of light critical to vision, factors in eye adaptation and capabilities of a wide variety of eye types.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book will appeal to a broad readership, including undergraduates in courses that involve vision and sensory physiology and postgraduates and research biologists studying vision, as well as ophthalmologists who seek wider knowledge, and physicists and engineers with an interest in optical mechanisms in the natural world. Authors Land and Nilsson (whose affiliations are not stated) start out with the origins of vision on earth and the evolution of sight, and then discuss aquatic eyes and the eyes of land animals, mirrors and reflectors of the eye, compound eyes, superposition eyes, and eye movements. Four color plates and hundreds of line drawings and cross-sections show the functions of different types of eyes."—SciTech Book News
