This Sentinel-2A 'colour vision' image captures part of the Mississippi swamps on the east and west banks of the Mississippi River, south of New Orleans and north of the Mississippi Delta.
Researchers at The University of Western Australia have discovered how ants see in colour, a breakthrough that one day could help scientists create more autonomous robots.
Did you know that the sky isn't actually blue? Perhaps in school you learned about how air scatters light, filtering out red light from the sun, but that is only half the story. While our eyes perceive a milky blue, a more ...
As humans, we live in a colourful world, but differences in visual systems means that not all animals see the world in the same way.
Ultraviolet patterns can make window glass visible to birds, thus preventing fatal collisions. However, it has now been shown that such windows are not likely to work for all species, but only for birds like small passerines, ...
New research has confirmed the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) has a form of colour vision that is more similar to that of dogs rather than to other animals of similar species.
(Phys.org) —Biologists have discovered that a wallaby's perception of colour is more similar to a dog than a quokka, sparking questions as to why marsupial colour vision has evolved so selectively.
As humans, we experience an amazing world of colour, but what can other animals see? Some see much more than us, but how they use this vision is largely unknown.
Researchers at the University of Alicante have developed new software that will interpret the vision of people affected by alterations in colour vision.
(Phys.org)—In a study just published in New Phytologist, researchers from RMIT and Monash universities have shown for the first time that Australian native flowers exclusively pollinated by birds have evolved colour spectral ...
