Understanding how animals achieve simultaneous conspicuousness to intended receivers and crypsis to unintended receivers requires investigating the distribution, size, and spectral characteristics of color patches. Here we characterize plumage patterns of 40 rainforest bird species living in understory or canopy. Visual signals maximizing (or minimizing) detection are expected to differ between these contrasted light habitats, making rainforests appropriate to test hypotheses of color signal… CONTINUE READING
