Evolution of colour in nature: An evening lecture and discussion with Ms Eleanor Drinkwater, University of York
How can prey use colour? How can colour frighten? From the incredible defence displays of caterpillars to the bizarre coloration of the orchid mantis, this talk will dive into some of the fundamental questions about the evolution of colour in animals. Through exploring the early theories of 19th century naturalist, Alfred Russel Wallace, and comparing them to the cutting-edge research being done today, this talk will explore the evolution of colour in nature as well as the colourful history behind this fascinating field of research.
Afterwards, there will be light refreshments and the opportunity for further discussion.
On-street pay and display parking is available along Museum Avenue and the surrounding streets. The main entrance to the Sir Martin Evans Building is located on College Lane (linking Museum Avenue with Park Place).
