Photoreceptor topography and spectral sensitivity in the common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula)

Vlahos, Lisa; Knott, Ben; Valter (Valter-Kocsi), Krisztina; Hemmi, Jan


Marsupials are believed to be the only non-primate mammals with both trichromatic and dichromatic color vision. The diversity of color vision systems present in marsupials remains mostly unexplored. Marsupials occupy a diverse range of habitats, which may have led to considerable variation in the presence, density, distribution, and spectral sensitivity of retinal photoreceptors. In this study we analyzed the distribution of photoreceptors in the common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula)....[Show more]
