Colour and Vision Through the Eyes of Nature
A fascinating book exploring the evolution of the eye and how colour works
Published to accompany the Natural History Museum's critically acclaimed exhibition, Colour and Vision explores the development of sight, and analyses the impact of colour on life’s evolutionary trajectory.
Drawing on spectacular specimens from the Museum's collections, Colour and Vision looks at the fluke occurrence of molecular building blocks that were able to detect light energy; the mechanics behind the formation of colour and the role of colour in natural selection and evolution.
