Multichannel spectrometers in animals
(IOP Science, 2018)
Multispectral, hyperspectral, polarimetric, and other types of multichannel imaging spectrometers are coming into common use for a variety of applications, including remote sensing, material identification, forensics, and ...
Opsin Expression in the Central Nervous System of the Mantis Shrimp Neogonodactylus oerstedii
(The University of Chicago Press, 2017-10-25)
Visual pigments, each composed of an opsin protein covalently bound to a chromophore molecule, confer light sensitivity for vision. The eyes of some species of stomatopod crustaceans, or mantis shrimp, can express dozens ...
Ultraviolet filters in stomatopod crustaceans: diversity, ecology and evolution
(The Company of Biologists Ltd, 2015-04-27)
Stomatopod crustaceans employ unique ultraviolet (UV) optical filters in order to tune the spectral sensitivities of their UV-sensitive photoreceptors. In the stomatopod species Neogonodactylus oerstedii, we previously ...
Out of the blue: the evolution of horizontally polarized signals in Haptosquilla (Crustacea, Stomatopoda, Protosquillidae)
(The Company of Biologists Ltd, 2014-07-09)
The polarization of light provides information that is used by many animals for a number of different visually guided behaviours. Several marine species, such as stomatopod crustaceans and cephalopod molluscs, communicate ...
Biological Sunscreens Tune Polychromatic Ultraviolet Vision in Mantis Shrimp
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-07-03)
Stomatopod crustaceans, or mantis shrimp, are renowned for their complex visual systems. Their array of 16 types of photoreceptors provides complex color reception, as well as linear and circular polarization sensitivity. ...
Polarization signals in mantis shrimps
While color signals are well known as a form of animal communication, a number of animals communicate using signals based on patterns of polarized light reflected from specialized body parts or structures. Mantis shrimps, ...
Quick guide Stomatopods
(Elsevier B.V, 2006-04-04)
Adaptive signaling behavior in stomatopods under varying light conditions
(Taylor and Francis Online, 2009-09-07)
Stomatopod crustaceans (mantis shrimp) are aggressive benthic marine predators with extraordinary color vision. When communicating with conspecifics, many stomatopods display conspicuously colored body areas, often in ...
Adaptive color vision in Pullosquilla litoralis (Stomatopoda, Lysiosquilloidea) associated with spectral and intensity changes in light environment
(The Company of Biologists Ltd, 2002-10-17)
Some stomatopod crustacean species that inhabit a range of habitat depths have color vision systems that adapt to changes in ambient light conditions. To date, this change in retinal function has been demonstrated in species ...
