    N S Hart
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Bristol, Vision, Touch and Hearing Research Centre, The University of Queensland, Bristol, Brisbane, BS8 1UG, QLD 4072, UK
    Curr Biol 10:115-7. 2000
    ..This is the first evidence for such asymmetry in any bird and suggests that retinal photoreceptor composition should be assessed during studies involving the lateralisation of visually mediated behaviours...

    N S Hart
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Bristol, UK
    J Comp Physiol A 186:375-87. 2000
    ..The distribution of cone photoreceptors across the retina, determined using conventional light and fluorescence microscopy, also varies between the two species and may reflect differences in their visual ecology...

    Vision, Touch and Hearing Research Centre, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, The University of Queensland, Brisbane 4072, Australia
    Prog Retin Eye Res 20:675-703. 2001
    ..Nevertheless, other variations in spectral sensitivity exist that reflect the variability and complexity of avian visual ecology...
