... , which are trichromatic. We assume that photoreceptors light-adapt to the background, thereby implementing the von Kries transformation, which can largely account for observed colour constancy in humans and other animals, including fish. This transformation does not, however, compensate for light...

... indifferent to such transitions. The initial avoidance of switching between patches of different lighting clearly indicates that bees perceive changes in overhead light ( Dyer, 2006 ; Lotto and Chittka, 2005 ), thus not ‘discounting’ the illumination as one might expect from a perfect colour constancy...

...Anna Balkenius; Almut Kelber SUMMARY Diurnal and nocturnal hawkmoths have been shown to use colour vision for flower discrimination. Here, we present evidence that the nocturnal hawkmoth Deilephila elpenor and the diurnal hawkmoth Macroglossum stellatarum also have colour constancy. Colour...

... unique is in the colour constancy of bees. Theoretical models predict that bees will perform poorly at identifying pure ultraviolet signals under conditions of changing illumination, which may explain the near absence of pure ultraviolet-reflecting flowers in nature. Ultraviolet reflections from...
