Solar and terrestrial radiations explain continental-scale variation in bird pigmentation
Animals living on the earth's surface are protected from the damaging effects of solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation by melanin pigments that color their integument. UV levels that reach the...

Dynamic signalling in the greater flamingo
Colourful plumage is typical of males in species with conventional sex roles, in which females care for offspring and males compete for females, as well as in many monogamous species in which both...

Molecular vibration as a novel explanatory mechanism for the expression of animal colouration
Animal colouration is characterized by the concentration of pigments in integumentary structures and by the nanoscale arrangement of constitutive elements. However, the influence of molecular...

Is It Possible to Infer Life History Traits from the Coloration of Extinct Species?
Paleo-colour scientists have recently made the transition from describing melanin-based colouration in fossil specimens to inferring life-history traits of the species involved. Two such cases...

Red mud as makeup in the Egyptian vultures
It is well-established that plumage colours are important for avian visual communication and are used to signal social information. Yet, little is known about the ability of birds to modify the...
