Documents the present state of understanding about primate color vision in 19 review articles written by 33 leading international experts.
'! this is an excellent book, I would strongly recommend the book to anyone looking for an over-view of the current state of play in the field of colour research and I would also recommend it as a postgraduate text.' Martin J. Tovee, Trends in Neurosciences
