Colour and Vision examines the evolution, variation and impact of eyes and colours in the natural world. Starting from a time before image forming eyes had developed, Steve Parker traces how the evolution of colour and vision had a profound impact on each other.
He explores the many different types of animal eyes, how they evolved, and why not all eyes see in the same way. Looking at how colour is formed by the way light interacts with pigments and microscopic structures, he also explains how colour can have multiple selective benefits in nature and how this impacted on the explosion of life on Earth.
Featuring images of some of the Natural History Museum's most remarkable specimens, Colour and Vision challenges our perceptions of colour and vision, leading us on a journey of discovery to the richness of today's natural world.
