John Lythgoe used to be one of many pioneers of the 'Ecology of Vision', an issue that he ably delineated in his vintage and inspirational publication released a few two decades in the past [1]. At center, the unique publication aimed regularly to spot inter-relationships among imaginative and prescient, animal behaviour and the surroundings. John Lythgoe excelled at making a choice on the attention-grabbing 'questions' within the ecology of an animal that geared up the 'answers' awarded via an research of the visible process. during the last 20 years, despite the fact that, considering the fact that Lythgoe's landmark booklet, a lot growth has been made and the sphere has broadened significantly. particularly, our knowing of the 'adaptive mechanisms' underlying the ecology of imaginative and prescient has reached enormous depths, extending to the molecular measurement, partially because of improvement and alertness of recent suggestions. This enhances the advances made in parallel in clinically orientated imaginative and prescient study [2]. the present booklet endeavours to check the growth made within the ecology of imaginative and prescient box by way of bringing jointly a few of the significant researchers almost immediately lively within the increased topic region. The contents take care of theoretical and actual concerns of sunshine and photoreception, current examples of visible approach constitution and serve as, and delve into elements of visible behaviour and communi­ cation. in the course of the booklet, we now have attempted to emphasize one of many significant subject matters to emerge in the ecology of imaginative and prescient: the excessive measure of adaptability that visible mechanisms are able to present process in keeping with assorted, and dynamic, environments and behaviours.
