Electroretinograms, retina analysis, behavioural observations and gut content and clearance rate of notothenioid Antarctic fish to determine the importance of visual function in feeding
Entry ID: K012_1987_1988_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The visual function in Pagothenia borchgrevinki was investigated in relation to their feeding by relating feeding with the vertical stratification of zooplankton and then determining their visual sensitivity and the environmental light levels to assess the relative importance of visual and non-visual sensory systems in feeding. Recordings of the electroretinograms (ERG - the electrical response of ... View entire text
