Spatial contrast sensitivity of the tree shrew
A mechanistic inter-species comparison of spatial contrast sensitivity
Neural correlates of stimulus spatial frequency-dependent contrast detection
TLDR
Comparison detection of visual stimuli with different spatial frequencies may likely involve population coding of V1 neurons with different preferred stimulus spatial frequencies, possibly from either evolution or postnatal visual experiences.
The contrast sensitivity function of a small cryptobenthic marine fish.
TLDR
It is concluded that the optokinetic reflex seems to be adapted to process low spatial frequency information from stimuli in the peripheral visual field and show that small marine fish can feature excellent contrast sensitivity at optimal spatial frequency.
Spatial contrast sensitivity of birds

TLDR
Six species of birds that represent a range of visual adaptations to varying environments exhibited low CS relative to humans and most mammals, which suggests that low CS is a general characteristic of birds.

Comparison of contrast sensitivity in macaque monkeys and humans
TLDR
The contrast sensitivities for the Macaca fascicularis, Macaca mulatta, and Macaca nemestrina were qualitatively and quantitatively similar.
Assessing spatial vision — automated measurement of the contrast-sensitivity function in the hooded rat
Mechanistic modeling of vertebrate spatial contrast sensitivity and acuity at low luminance
TLDR
It was shown that in order to describe scotopic CSF, the theory must be modified to account for important mechanistic changes, which occur as cone vision switches to rod vision.

Visual Acuity and Spatial Modulation Thresholds
Seeing shapes and patterns is the major capacity inherent in our visual system. It depends, to be sure, on the ability to distinguish differences in light intensity and color, but this is not enough;
Visibility of aperiodic patterns compared with that of sinusoidal gratings
TLDR
Using experimental curves relating the threshold contrast of sinusoidal grating patterns to their spatial frequency, the expected threshold contrast curves for three aperiodic patterns are calculated and it is made that the system is linear near the threshold.
