Polarized light vision in the eye of the desert locust,Schistocerca gregaria - An electrophysiological and histological approach

Several studies strongly imply that the desert locust (Schistocerca gregaria) is able to use polarized light patterns in the sky for orientation tasks. A specialized region in its compound eye (DRA) contains photoreceptor cells which are morphologically adapted for the detection of polarized light....
