The visual world of animals is highly diverse and often very different from the world that we humans take for granted. This book provides an extensive review of the latest behavioral and neurobiological research on animal vision, highlighting fascinating species similarities and differences in visual processing. It contains 26 chapters written by world-leading experts about a variety of species including: honeybees, spiders, fish, birds, and primates. The chapters are divided into six sections: Perceptual grouping and segmentation, Object perception and object recognition, Motion perception, Visual attention, Different dimensions of visual perception, and Evolution of the visual system. An exhaustive work in range and depth, How Animals See the World will be a valuable resource for advanced students and researchers in areas of cognitive psychology, perception and cognitive neuroscience, as well as researchers in the visual sciences.

Edward A. Wasserman is Dewey B. and Velma P. Stuit Professor of Experimental Psychology at the University of Iowa and coeditor with Thomas Zentall of Comparative Cognition: Experimental Explorations of Animal Intelligence (Oxford University Press, 2006). He is a member of the Delta Center at the University of Iowa, dedicated to the investigation of learning, development, and change. Wasserman's research has centered on learning, memory, cognition, and perception in humans and nonhuman animals.

Review:


"This is a serious book covering a complicated but fascinating topic. I recommend it for the serious reader, whether researcher, teacher, or student, who wants to know more about how animals see the world in all of the ways that seeing can be defined. This is a book that would certainly merit a spot on the bookshelf of comparative and evolutionary psychologists as well as behavioral and evolutionary biologists, as there is much in here to appreciate for each of these groups." -- Michael J. Beran, PsycCRITIQUES


"This deep yet fascinating book is not quite what it seems from the title. Rather than "How Animals See the World," it should be "Visual Psychophysics of Birds and Primates." Ninety-eight percent of animals are invertebrates, and 85 percent of habitable space is aquatic; both are little represented here, though the salticid spiders and honeybees make an interesting contrast to vertebrate vision... The final section, on evolution of the vertebrate visual system's structures and basic physiology, belongs first as a foundation. Nevertheless, the book is fascinating reading for the specialist in perception and the cognitive neuroscientist, though not the beginner. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and researchers/faculty." -- J. A. Mather, University of Lethbridge, CHOICE
