With the aim of clarifying the role of screening pigments in photoreceptor optics of the compound eye, a comparative study of the optical properties of the honeybee eye in the visible region of the spectrum was carried out using wild-type bees and eye colour mutantssnow, snow laranja, ivoryumberandchartreuse with total or partial blockage of the tryptophane… CONTINUE READING
