Bird colours are often very beautiful, but many are often fairly drab. Have you every wondered how bird colours have evolved, how colours are produced, and how birds see colour? In this webinar Dr Keats will explore selection pressures that lead to particular colours patterns evolving, delve into the basic methods of colour production in birds, and look into how birds see colour and how that differs from how we see colour. Concepts explored will include the basics of colour, natural selection, sexual selection, animal signalling, and the visual system of birds.
