Description: Selection is expected to favour the evolution of efficacy in visual communication. This extends to deceptive systems, and predicts functional links between the structure of visual signals and their be ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/355348
Description: Summary: 1. Cryptic coloration may evolve in response to selective pressure imposed by predators, yet effective intraspecific communication may require some level of detectability. This creates a tens ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/193820
Description: Structurally generated colours are at least as commonplace and varied components of animal signals as pigment colours, yet we know far less about the former, both in terms of the patterns and phenotyp ... More
