The capacity for retinal regeneration in cold-blooded vertebrates has long been recognized. Regeneration occurs, in part, through a population of retinal stem cells residing at the peripheral margin of the retina. It has generally been thought that homeothermic vertebrates, such as birds and mammals, lack this so-called ciliary marginal zone.
