Spectral sensitivity of the newt taricha granulosa to visible and uv radiation

, : Spectral sensitivity of the newt taricha granulosa to visible and uv radiation. Comparative Biochemistry & Physiology A 63(2): 313-318

Using an electroretinographic technique, the eye of T. granulosa was most sensitive to wavelengths of light in the vicinity of 600 nm, in both the dark- and light-adapted states. UV sensitivity extends into the UV B region (320-290 nm). The lens of the eye fluoresces in response to UV light in the range from 310-390 nm with an observed excitation maximum between 350 and 360 nm. Fluorescence of the lens may be a contributing factor in UV sensitivity.

Daffodil flowers extend laterally from the long axes of their stems; as a result, wind on a flower exerts torsional as well as flexural stress on the stem. Stems respond by twisting, and thus flowers reorient to face downwind in moderate winds, in...

It is not known what constitutes an optimal diet in infancy.
