A second edition () expanded to pages was considered equally comprehensive, scholarly, and com-plete. The Colours of Animals is a zoology book written in by Sir Edward Bagnall Poulton (–). It was the first substantial textbook to argue the case for Darwinian selection applying to all aspects of animal book also pioneered the concept of frequency-dependent selection and introduced the term "aposematism".

The book begins with a brief account of the physical causes Author: Edward Bagnall Poulton. Colour-producing molecules fall into two distinct classes: biochromes and structural colours or "schemochromes". The biochromes include true pigments, such as carotenoids and pteridines. These pigments selectively absorb parts of the visible light spectrum that makes up white light while permitting other wavelengths to reach the eye of the.

Thomas Young (–) extended Newton's particle theory of light by showing that light could also behave as a wave. He showed in that light could diffract from sharp edges or slits, creating interference patterns.

In his book Animal Coloration, Frank Evers Beddard (–) acknowledged the existence of structural colours: "The colours of animals are due either solely to. Introduction. Although Hooke and Newton initiated the field in the 17th century, with studies of silverfish insects and peacocks respectively, it was not until the introduction of the electron microscope to biology in the s that structures causing colour in animals were studied accurately at the nano-scale required (beginning with Anderson and Richards in ).Cited by: Animal Colors may be a very simplistic book but it is such a great book to look through and learn from.

At first I thought this book was in the wrong area but turns out this book is all about facts. By showing many animals that go with all the different colors we see everyday. To pair with this colorful book I chose Giraffes can't dance by /5.

Animal Coloration, or in full Animal Coloration: An Account of the Principal Facts and Theories Relating to the Colours and Markings of Animals, is a book by the English zoologist Frank Evers Beddard, published by Swan Sonnenschein in It formed part of the ongoing debate amongst zoologists about the relevance of Charles Darwin's theory of natural selection to the observed appearance Author: Frank Evers Beddard.

Structural coloration is the production of color by selective light reflection by nanostructured surfaces with features of the same scale as incident visible light wavelengths.

While pigments degrade and their colors fade over time, structural coloration can persist for long periods, even after the death of the organism.

Examples include termite mounds, wasp and beehives, burrow complexes of rodents, beaver dams, elaborate nests of birds, and webs of spiders. Often, these structures incorporate sophisticated features such as temperature regulation, traps, bait, ventilation, special-purpose chambers and many other features.
