Welcome to the Stuart-Fox Lab

The vivid colours of the natural world are one of the most striking and beautiful aspects of life’s diversity. Our team studies the biology of light and colour. How are these colours produced and perceived in different animal groups, and what is their biological function? We tackle questions at different scales of biological organisation – from optical properties at the nanometre scale to global patterns of colour diversity.
