Some of you already will know about the special issue of Evolution: Education and Outreach on the evolution of eyes that I edited last year (see below). There is now another excellent collection of papers on this subject in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B, edited by eye experts Trevor D. Lamb, Detlev Arendt, and Shaun P. Collin. The evolution of phototransduction and eyes edited by Trevor D. Lamb, Detlev Arendt, and Shaun P. Collin Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B, vol. 364, issue 1531, Oct. 19, 2009 The evolution of phototransduction and eyes Trevor D. Lamb, Detlev Arendt, and Shaun P. Collin Evolution of phototaxis Gáspár Jékely The ‘division of labour’ model of eye evolution Detlev Arendt, Harald Hausen, and Günter Purschke Eye evolution: common use and independent recruitment of genetic components Pavel Vopalensky and Zbynek Kozmik The evolution of eyes and visually guided behaviour Dan-Eric Nilsson The evolution of irradiance detection: melanopsin and the non-visual opsins Stuart N.
