Morphological and behavioral limit of visual resolution in temperate ( Hippocampus abdominalis ) and tropical ( Hippocampus taeniopterus ) seahorses

Lee, HieRin; Bumsted O'Brien, Keely

Description

Seahorses are visually guided feeders that prey upon small fast-moving crustaceans. Seahorse habitats range from clear tropical to turbid temperate waters. How are seahorse retinae specialized to mediate vision in these diverse environmentsMost species of seahorse have a specialization in their retina associated with acute vision, the fovea. The purpose of this study was to characterize the fovea of temperate Hippocampus abdominalis and tropical H. taeniopterus seahorses and to investigate...[Show more]
