Abstract

Research on animal coloration is a vibrant area in behavioural/evolutionary ecology. One of the main areas of animal coloration research is investigating them as an adaptation to avoid predation. Camouflage is the most common form of anti-predator coloration and many animals have evolved fine-tuned behavioural strategies to improve their camouflage. However, their camouflage is never perfect, thus some animals have evolved various back-up defence strategies in case their camouflage fails, which is called secondary defences. In this seminar, I will introduce the studies on camouflage, secondary defences, and other colour defences in insects and amphibians.
