This book presents the papers given at a symposium held at the Florida State University in Tallahassee on April 25 through 27,1979. Many of the papers have in the meantime appeared in print in various scientific journals, but it is nice to have them all together in one volume. About half of the book is concerned with the influence of light on the vertebrate eye, though the human eye is really not considered in depth. The other half deals with invertebrates (no monograph on visual processes would be complete without mentioning the limulus eye) and molecular aspects of photoreceptor physiology. Anybody interested in the effect of light on the visual system could read this book with benefit.
