Stimulus luminance and the spatial acuity of domestic fowl (Gallus g. domesticus)
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.
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.
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.
Comparison of functional and anatomical estimations of visual acuity in two species of coral reef fish
TLDR
Comparison of behavioural and anatomical estimates of visual acuity in coral reef fish reveals higher values for anatomical estimates but these may not be indicative of actual performance, and suggests that there is unlikely to be a simple scaling factor to link the two measures across all fish species.
Spatial Vision in Birds: Anatomical investigation of spatial resolving power
TLDR
This thesis presents four studies on different aspects of spatial vision in parrots, procellariiform seabirds and birds of prey, and indicates, that single cones, not double cones, mediate the high spatial resolution in the raptor fovea.
Contrast response functions in the visual wulst of the alert burrowing owl: a single-unit study.
TLDR
A detailed quantitative analysis of the contrast response of 120 individual neurons recorded from the visual wulst of awake burrowing owls (Athene cunicularia) concludes that a high degree of model uncertainty is present in the data, meaning that no single descriptor is able on its own to capture the heterogeneous nature of single-unit contrast responses in the wulST.
The retinal basis of vision in chicken.
Anatomical investigation of spatial resolving power
TLDR
This thesis presents four studies on different aspects of spatial vision in parrots, procellariiform seabirds and birds of prey, and indicates, that single cones, not double cones, mediate the high spatial resolution in the raptor fovea.

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.
