An Evolutionary Perspective on Vision, Color Signals, and Agression in Stomatopod Crustaceans
Abstract: Stomatopod crustaceans have the most complex visual systems described in animals and display species-specific color signals used in aggressive interactions; yet very little is known about the evolution or function of these interacting systems among species. To understand the drivers of diversity in stomatopods we are investigating the evolution of vision, color, and aggressive behaviors.
