... combinations of auditory and visual cues. To do so, we utilized a new method that eliminates the confounds typically associated with testing bat vision and precludes auditory cues. We found that the presence of visual and auditory cues together enhances bats' avoidance response to obstacles compared with cues...

...Lauren Sumner-Rooney; John D. Kirwan; Carsten Lüter; Esther Ullrich-Lüter Spatial vision was recently reported in a brittle star, Ophiomastix wendtii , which lacks discrete eyes, but little is known about its visual ecology. Our aim was to better characterize the vision and visual ecology of this...

... spider families, but their muscular control is presumably less precise. Besides salticids, we know most about the vision of Cupiennius salei (Family Ctenidae), a night-hunting sit-and-wait predator ( Kaps and Schmid, 1996 ; Neuhofer et al., 2009 ; Schmid, 1998 ). Their principal eyes are also mobile...
