9780198509684: Animal Eyes (Oxford Animal Biology Series)
Review:

The novelty and skilled treatment of the subject matter make it a unique and valuable work. It should be in the library of every college, university, and school of optometry. ( The Quarterly Review of Biology)

Charming and excellent book ... Land and Nilsson are acknowledged authorities on invertebrate optics, and their collaboration in this book is a very successful one ... Their handling of the mathematical aspects of optics is elegant and remarkably penetrating. ( The Quarterly Review of Biology)

From the Publisher:

"Animal Eyes" aims to provide a comprehensive account of all known types of eye. It takes the diversity of optical mechanisms as a framework, but many other aspects of the structure and function of eyes are examined. Visual ecology, for example, the way that eyes are specifically adapted to the lifestyles of the animals that bear them, is another important theme. The 'design philosophy' of eyes is explored, too: what are the physical constraints on the way that an eye performs its functions, and how are these addressed by the different types of eye? Early and closing chapters look at the properties of light critical to vision, and factors in eye adaptation like spatial resolution, sensitivity, and movement, while the central sections assess the capabilities of a wide variety of eye types.
