[Bio2] Some sense-ible links

  1. Jellyfish eyes solve optical mystery – interesting article that involves the discovery of jellyfish genes that cause the growth of extra eyes in fruit flies
  2. Bug eyes – super close-up photos 🙂 – as a clarification to insect vision: each ommatidium can detect a picture element (pixel) and six ommatidia are arranged into a lens and organisms can have anything from a handful to a thousand lenses. Each lens has a slightly different view of the environment.
