Product Description

Review

Animal Eyes is written in a vivid and clear style which will be understandable to both physicists and biologists. I highly recommend it to anyone, including amateurs, students and experienced researchers. (Optics & Photonics News)

... fascinating and useful. (Pat Morris, Zoological Journal)

Great book! 17 Aug. 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a somewhat meandering but fascinating text. It includes descriptions of interesting eyes, eye optics, and possible evolutionary history of eyes. Terrific read!

Well written text. An excellent chapter with mathematical examples on the optical design of the eye. A must for any reader interested in the topic.
