Through the eyes of others

Through the eyes of different animals, the world does not look the same. How we perceive the world around us, is a consequence of the physiology of our eyes.

Many birds can see a greater number of colors than humans do and can also see the ultraviolet light that is beyond our visual spectra. Seals do not see colors at all and some lizards see colors in the dark.

In Lund Vision Group, at Lund University, scientists are literally looking into the eyes of different animals. The research of Almut Kelber and Olle Lind has greatly increased our understanding how animals see the world.
