Deimatism: a neglected component of antipredator defence
Deimatic or ‘startle’ displays cause a receiver to recoil reflexively in response to a sudden change in sensory input. Deimatism is sometimes implicitly treated as a form of aposematismExpand

Comparing colors using visual models
An outstanding challenge for the study of color traits is how best to use “colour spaces” to represent their visual perception, particularly when asking questions of color difference (e.g. theExpand

Signal design and courtship presentation coincide for highly biased delivery of an iridescent butterfly mating signal
Sensory drive theory contends that signaling systems should evolve to optimize transmission between senders and intended receivers, while minimizing visibility to eavesdroppers where possible. InExpand

Technicolour deceit: a sensory basis for the study of colour-based lures
The study of deceptive signalling has provided compelling insights into evolutionary and ecological processes. Aside from mimicry, however, research into the use of colour as a deceptive instrumentExpand

Abiotic and biotic predictors of macroecological patterns in bird and butterfly coloration
Animal color phenotypes are invariably influenced by both their biotic community and the abiotic environments. A host of hypotheses have been proposed for how variables such as solar radiation,Expand
