If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jimena Berni.

The aim of my work is to understand how eyes and visual systems have adapted to the biological and ecological needs of animals. Given the energy and space limitations of visual systems, how do animals with different ecology compromise between spatial, spectral and temporal resolution and absolute sensitivity? One of the research topics I have been following for a number of years is the observation that many animals are colour-blind in dim light. I have studied the absolute colour vision limits in a variety of animals including bees, moths and horses, and most recently birds, frogs and toads.
