    ..The achieved performance can be explained by the combined effect of pupil constriction and strong accommodation...

    Anna Gislén
    Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Zoology Building, Lund University, Helgonavagen 3, Sweden
    Curr Biol 13:833-6. 2003
    ..This extreme reaction-which is routine in Moken children-is completely absent in European children. Because they are completely dependent on the sea, the Moken are very likely to derive great benefit from this strategy...

    J Opt Soc Am A Opt Image Sci Vis 21:2061-4. 2004
    ..The same theory could be useful when discussing the visual acuity of amphibious animals, as they may use pupil constriction as a means of improving underwater vision...

    Eric J Warrant
    Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Zoology Building, University of Lund, Helgonavagen 3, S 22362 Lund, Sweden
    Curr Biol 14:1309-18. 2004
    ..The insensitive optics of apposition eyes are not well suited for nocturnal vision. How well then do nocturnal bees and wasps see? What optical and neural adaptations have they evolved for nocturnal vision?..

    Lund University, Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Zoology Building, Helgonavagen 3, 22362 Lund, Sweden
    Vision Res 48:989-93. 2008
    ..A mature human visual system may furthermore be better tuned to handle dimmer and thus noisier images in the photopic range than the developing visual system of a child...
