Abstract

A metabolic characteristic of many birds which has been appreciated for a number of years is that they specifically accumulate xanthophylls rather than carotenes in their feathers and their body tissues. A notable and important exception is the presence of a unique carotene in the oil droplets of the retina (see Section 10.2.4).
