Neurobiology, neuroethology, molecular genetics, medicine, psychology, color metrics and measurement, philosophy, and art are among the fields that have been mined to produce a introductory graduate text and a reference for professionals wanting a broad view of current research beyond their specialty. The topics include aging through the eyes of Monet, color vision in lower vertebrates, a historical and contemporary review of the perception of blackness, inferences about infant color vision, and the use of computer graphics in PostScript for color didactics. Well illustrated, often in color. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
