... differences in motion detectability across species when the stimuli were conspicuous, suggesting differences in visual acuity in closely related species of jumping spiders. Furthermore, small stimuli elicited significantly lower responses than large stimuli across species and speeds. Our results thus suggest...

... attributed. Summary: The triggerfish Rhinecanthus aculeatus is an ideal species for behavioural investigations of visual processes. They express six opsin proteins in different photoreceptors, and their visual acuity is significantly better for achromatic than for chromatic stimuli. Behaviour...

... whether the animals oriented towards the stimulus. We found that D. africanum responds by taxis towards isoluminant stimuli with a spatial resolution in the range of 29–69 deg. This corresponds to a theoretical acceptance angle of 38–89 deg, assuming a contrast threshold of 10%. The visual acuity...

Detailed examination of the retinal ganglion cell layer in order to determine ganglion cell densities, coupled with focal length estimates, will provide measures of visual acuity across geckos that vary in their diel activity pattern.

... ° to one side to see the prey straight ahead with maximum visual acuity, yet turning the head would presumably slow their diving speed by increasing aerodynamic drag. This paper investigates the aerodynamic drag part of this paradox by measuring the drag and torque on wingless model bodies of a peregrine...
