Vision and Camouflage Citizen Science Games

Students will love these online citizen science games about the evolution of vision and camouflage, and they could make a great science club resource:  http://www.sensoryecology.com/games/

Funded by BBSRC, the key aims of this real research project are to understand how visual information guides behaviour, and how diversity in animal coloration results from key evolutionary processes, animal visual systems, and characteristics of the environment (including climate change and human impacts). They are also studying how differences in animal vision have an impact in human-contexts, such as animal sports and farming.
