Colour And Vision Through The Eyes Of Nature

A fascinating guide to a fundamental biological phenomenon, Colour and Vision explores the development of sight, and analyses the impact of colour on life’s evolutionary trajectory. 

 

Published in association with the Natural History Museum, this book details the progression of eyesight from a time before image-forming eyes had developed.

 

Colour and Vision examines one of life’s most overlooked developments - the fluke occurrence of molecular building blocks that were able to detect light energy.

 

Steve Parker explains the mechanics behind the formation of colour, by detailing how light interacts with pigment and microscopic structures. The role of colour in natural selection and evolution is explored in compelling detail alongside images of specimens from the Natural History Museum.

 

This remarkable book will challenge your perceptions of vision, and open your eyes to the richness of today's natural world.
