Evolution : An Irresistibly Clear View of Land

Nilsson, Dan E. LU (2017) In Current Biology 27(14). p.715-717
Abstract

Visually guided predation is range-limited in water, but works over long distances on land. This may have driven our last aquatic ancestors to evolve large eyes on the top of their head for spotting crunchy meals on ancient riverbanks.
