Episode Description

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, join Mitch and Tom as they explore the world of colour, camouflage, mimicry, and disguise. Find out why plants change colour over the seasons, had you thought of it like this before? Explore the different types of camouflage and why the animals that use them have evolved to do so! Does something the tiger that looks orange to you, look orange to its prey?! Chameleons and cephalopods are famous for changing colour to blend into their background but is that theory correct and how do they do it?! Find out here and check out our interview with Dr. Lawrence Krauss on “The Physics of Climate Change”. Music: WhiteBatAudio.com
