The University of Bristol Ecology of Vision Research Group
Seeing the World Through the Eyes of Animals
We are an internationally leading vision research group that focuses on how animal vision functions in a wide range of species - including crustaceans, fish and cephalopods. A particular strength of the group is understanding the optical principles that define the way different biological systems manipulate light and discovering how and why they have evolved.
