The Ecology of Vision - 1st edition

£65.00

Product description

1st edition
Very good condition with some minor signs of shelf wear. Has original dust jacket
To react purposefully to its environment, an animal needs to know what is going on around it. The information provided by the sensory systems is the essential link between an animal and its surroundings; the type and quality of the information received by an animal thus has a profound influence on its life-style. Under favourable conditions the sense of vision provides an instant and detailed picture of the outside world, but when conditions become difficult the animal has to abandon activities that need visual information of high quality.
