... impede successful tabanid landings (aliasing, contrast, and polarization but additionally explored pattern element size) employing video footage of horseflies around differently patterned coats placed on domestic horses. We found that horseflies are averse to landing on highly but not on lightly...

...James J. Foster; John D. Kirwan; Basil el Jundi; Jochen Smolka; Lana Khaldy; Emily Baird; Marcus J. Byrne; Dan-Eric Nilsson; Sönke Johnsen; Marie Dacke ABSTRACT For polarized light to inform behaviour, the typical range of degrees of polarization observable in the animal's natural environment must...

...Finlay J. Stewart; Michiyo Kinoshita; Kentaro Arikawa ABSTRACT The swallowtail butterfly Papilio xuthus can perceive the linear polarization of light. Using a novel polarization projection system, we recently demonstrated that P. xuthus can detect visual motion based on polarization contrast...

...Melanie Ailín Basnak; Verónica Pérez-Schuster; Gabriela Hermitte; Martín Berón de Astrada ABSTRACT Many animal species take advantage of polarization vision for vital tasks such as orientation, communication and contrast enhancement. Previous studies have suggested that decapod crustaceans use...

...Thomas W. Cronin; Nadav Shashar SUMMARY Sensitivity to polarized light is widespread among marine animals, including crustaceans, cephalopods and some fishes. They use this ability to orient and find prey, and possibly for a number of other visual tasks. Unlike the ultraviolet-sensitive...

...Iñigo Novales Flamarique; Howard I. Browman SUMMARY Several fish species appear to be polarization sensitive, i.e. to be able to discriminate a light source’s maximum plane of polarization from any other plane. However, the functional significance of this ability remains unclear. We tested...
