Lund Vision Group

Organisational unit: Research group

Research areas and keywords



The research in the research group Lund Vision Group include the evolution of animal eyes and their optical mechanisms, colour vision and nocturnal vision in animals, navigation using polarized light and magnetic fields as well as image enhancement in dim light.


The Lund Vision Group is internationally recognised as one of the leading groups in comparative visual science in the world. With 35-40 academics our vision research stretches across the entire animal kingdom, from jellyfishes, insects and crustaceans, to squids and vertebrates. Our speciality is the design and evolution of eyes, how eyes are adapted to different lifestyles and habitats, and how vision is used for controlling behaviour. Our techniques range from optics, electrophysiology and theoretical modelling, to microscopy, molecular biology and behavioural experiments.
