Abstract

The visual world of animals is highly diverse and often very different from the world that we humans take for granted. This book provides an extensive review of the latest behavioral and neurobiological research on animal vision, highlighting fascinating species similarities and differences in visual processing. It contains twenty-six chapters about a variety of species including: honeybees, spiders, fish, birds, and primates. The chapters are divided into six sections: perceptual grouping and segmentation, object perception and object recognition, motion perception, visual attention, different dimensions of visual perception, and the evolution of the visual system.
