Opsin Genes and Visual Ecology in a Nocturnal Folivorous Lemur

Abstract

Primate color vision has traditionally been examined in the context of diurnal activity, but recent genetic and ecological studies suggest that color vision plays a role in nocturnal primate behavior and ecology as well. In this study, we united molecular analyses of cone visual pigment (opsin) genes with visual modeling analyses of food items to explore… (More)
