Maps of ganglion-cell distribution have been constructed from whole-mounted retinas of five Australian marsupial species. The pademelon wallaby (Thylogale billiardieri), the scrub wallaby or tammar (Macropus eugenii), and the carnivorous Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harissi) have both a visual streak and an area centralis. The retina of the brown bandicoot(More)
The distribution of ganglion cells in the retina of the adult brush-tailed possum was determined by light microscopy of Nissl stained retinal whole mounts. Qualitatively, the distribution in this marsupial retina shows features, such as an area centralis and a visual streak, which are found separately or together in eutherian mammals. The possum retina is(More)
