When Daphnia pulex are presented on one side of their visual field with diffuse, large-area linearly polarized light with a horizontal e-vector and on the other side of their visual field with large-area polarized light with a lower degree of polarization, they swim towards the place with the higher degree of polarization. The response is intensity-invariant: Daphnia pulex swim towards the place of maximal polarization regardless of which side of their visual field has the higher intensity of… CONTINUE READING
