Why different regions of the retina have different spectral sensitivities: A review of mechanisms and functional significance of intraretinal variability in spectral sensitivity in vertebrates

The mechanisms mediating differences in spectral sensitivity are described, which are in general well understood, as well as the functional significance of intraretinal variability, which for the most part is unclear at best.

Occlusable corneas in toadfishes: light transmission, movement and ultrastruture of pigment during light- and dark-adaptation

The light transmission and location of the yellow/orange pigment throughout the cornea, the temporal properties of pigment migration and the ultrastructure of the pigmented processes during light- and dark-adaptation of toadfishes are examined.

Visual Pigments, Ocular Filters and the Evolution of Snake Vision.

Positive selection was inferred at multiple sites in all three opsins, these being concentrated in transmembrane domains and thus likely to have a substantial effect on spectral tuning and other aspects of opsin function.

The spectral transmission of ocular media suggests ultraviolet sensitivity is widespread among mammals

All species whose lenses removed short wavelengths had retinae specialized for high spatial resolution and relatively high cone numbers, suggesting that UV removal is primarily linked to increased acuity.

Long-wave sensitivity in the masked greenling (Hexagrammos octogrammus), a shallow-water marine fish

Vision and visual variation in the peacock blenny (Salaria pavo)

This is the first in depth study of the visual system of a blenniid fish and indicates potential within-species visual variation that may be related to the species’ habitat and morph-specific behavioural requirements.

Patterns of pigmentation in the eye lens of the deep-sea hatchetfish,Argyropelecus affinis Garman

The data on the spectral absorbance of the lens and visual pigment of these fishes suggest that the lens pigmentation acts as a short-wave filter to improve acuity of the visual system.

Exposure to solar radiation may increase ocular UV-filtering in the juvenile scalloped hammerhead shark, Sphyrnalewini

Sharks exposed to greater solar radiation showed increased UV blocking in their corneal tissues, particularly at wavelengths below 310 nm, and further experiments will be needed to confirm that this apparently rapid cornea adaptation to high light was due to the increased UV exposure.

Ontogenetic changes and environmental effects on ocular transmission in four species of coral reef fishes

Comparisons of predicted versus observed transmission values suggest that pigment concentrations are held constant with age for all species, but species- and family-level differences emerge.
