About the Author

Martin Stevens is a BBSRC David Phillips Fellow, based in the Centre for Ecology & Conservation, University of Exeter. His research focuses on sensory ecology and behaviour, especially animal coloration and vision, across a wide range of organisms. His work has covered animal colour and spatial vision, anti-predator markings, brood parasitism and cuckoos, and sexual signals and vision in primates. He did his PhD at the University of Bristol on animal camouflage and bird vision, and has published over 40 scientific manuscripts.


This book is an ambitious and successful attempt to integrate mechanistic and functional aspects of communication by the authors ... essential reading. * Tim Caro, The Quarterly Review of Biology *
the lay person could close this book armed with a thorough and broad understanding of natural selection without even realising it. Not only that, but theyll have read some really interesting natural history stories and picked up some fascinating insights into animal behaviour, physiology and ecology. * Graeme D. Ruxton, Current Biology *
