Definition of monochromatism in English:
Complete colour blindness in which all colours appear as shades of one colour.
- The genetic cause has been determined for several color vision defects, achromatopsia (the loss of all color vision), blue monochromatism, protanopia, deuteranopia, and enhanced S-cone syndrome.
- Dichromatism may have been lost repeatedly within the dabbling ducks, and thus it is possible that monochromatism is the derived state in Grey Teal (vs. dichromatism in the other taxa).
