An elder and lore man called me last night, at 2am, in a state I've never heard him before. Santos are trying to destroy the sacred Gomeroi caves we use for the final stage of initiation. I have never felt so powerless. How do we stop this?

I’m excited to finally share this work. Countless discussions with many colleagues went into this manuscript and I thank all of those people. The manuscript explores the origin and evolution of a sex megachromosome present in some African cichlid fish 1/4

New paper!🎉Variation in orange-red color discrimination by zebra finch females correlates with variation in the carotenoid concentration of their retinal droplets. Carotenoids underlie variation in the signal & its perception! In BehavEcol&Sociobiol 1/2

A little help please, animal vision twitter. Am I forgetting any groups that have a tapetum or other sorts of reflector optics in their visual systems? I'm especially suspicious of missing something in cephalopods or some wormy things.

New pre-print: We quantified the context-dependency of luminance contrast perception in triggerfish and how the Receptor Noise Limited (RNL) model copes with different viewing contexts. A) It doesn't really B) There's a way around that.

Animals have evolved spectacular ! What secrets inside the hidden have facilitated this? Is the neural basis of social diversity similar within vs between , or ? We find out in ! .

In Australia, 35% of the average household bin is food waste. Food waste sent to landfill produces methane, a greenhouse gas that is 28 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

Our new open access paper on the spatiotemporal distribution patterns of Australasian white sharks is out in . We tagged 103 white sharks with satellite and acoustic transmitters and analysed their movement patterns.

Do you live by or do field work in these areas highlighted in red? Have you seen any red-flowering Silene? I'm looking for collection help as my field collection plans this summer are not going to happen.🌺

1/4 Fresh off the press - Visual pigment evolution of & co! (). The evolution of spectral tuning in these fish is very interesting, and the different ways in which they tune their visual sensitivities.
