Follow up on Lecture 2

I accidentally discovered while researching Allan Shepherd that cats have 2000 times the number of rods that humans do, owls have no cones at all, and chickens have no rods. Source: Allan Shepherd, "Curious Incidents in the garden at nighttime" (Centre for Alternative Technology 2005)

I have done some looking into the colour gamuts too, but I'm still not entirely comfortable with how they are generated. It seems to be a very mathematical process (which should make it better! Oh well...) that I'm not sure I actually need to know about. The wikipedia entries for colour gamut and  the CIE 1931 colour space give an overview, but as ever a certified source would be nice.
