Motion cues provide the bee's visual world with a third dimension
Lehrer, Myriam; Srinivasan, Mandyam V.; Zhang, Shao-Wu; Horridge, George Adrian
To extract the third dimension from a two-dimensional retinal image most insects, including bees, cannot rely on mechanisms common in vertebrates such as accommodation, binocular convergence or stereoscopic vision1,2. Instead, they use the apparent size of familiar objects (the nearer the object, the larger its image), and objects' apparent motion (the nearer an object, the higher the speed of its image) 3–8. In several studies9–12 bees have been found to exploit size cues, whereas in...[Show more]
