Exploring the unseen: the adaptive significance of animal-visible and infrared colour change
Grant number: DP120100105 | Funding period: 2012 - 2015
Our research on benefits of rapid colour change in cold-blooded animals, spanning the full spectrum of solar energy, will provide novel insights into the adaptive significance of animal colour patterns. It will also provide a natural model for development of advanced colour-changing materials with a wide range of applications.
