A Visual and Scientific Exploration.
'Colour in Nature' is the first book to focus on all aspects of colour, from physical and atmospheric phenomena to the world of plant and animals. Among many other topics, it explores the physics of colour and light, colour in the galaxy, the colours of the earth's surface in its oceans, rocks and minerals, the use of colour in habitats from deserts to rain forests, how animals see colours and how they use them for camouflage and communication. There are clear explanations of the aspects of colour which we encounter every day, such as blue skies and green plants, and there is also detailed information which will enable the reader to understand more complex colour phenomena, such as iridescence and bioluminescence.
With over 300 stunning colour photographs and diagrams to accompany the high readable test, 'Colour in Nature' is an excellent source of reference, offering an encyclopedic range of information about the multitude of forms and uses that colour has in our universe.
