Animal Eyes provides a comparative account of all known types of eye in the animal

kingdom, outlining their structure and function with an emphasis on the nature of

the optical systems and the physical principles involved in image formation. A

universal theme throughout the book is the evolution and taxonomic distribution of

each type of eye, and the roles of different eye types in the behaviour and ecology

of the animals that possess them. In comparing the specificcapabilities of eyes, it

considers the factors that lead to good resolution of detail and the ability to

function under a wide range of light conditions. This new edition is fully updated

throughout, incorporating more than a decade of new discoveries and research.
