Science Behind Colours

$451.00 inc. GST

Volumes: 12

The animal kingdom abounds with bright colours, from the vibrant red, pink, orange, and yellow pigments in parrot feathers to the bold black and orange stripes of tigers.

Colour plays a multitude of roles in the natural world—it is used to entice, to camouflage, or to warn other creatures.

Each book highlights a specific animal, detailing how and why the animal gets its colours, how and why its colours change, and what purpose the colours serve.
