...Richard O. Prum; Jeff A. Cole; Rodolfo H. Torres SUMMARY For nearly 80 years, the non-iridescent, blue, integumentary structural colours of dragonflies and damselflies (Odonata) have been attributed to incoherent Tyndall or Rayleigh scattering. We investigated the production of the integumentary...

...Richard O. Prum; Rodolfo H. Torres SUMMARY For more than a century, the blue structural colours of mammalian skin have been hypothesized to be produced by incoherent, Rayleigh or Tyndall scattering. We investigated the colour, anatomy, nanostructure and biophysics of structurally coloured skin from...

...Richard O. Prum; Rodolfo Torres SUMMARY Structural colours of avian skin have long been hypothesized to be produced by incoherent (Rayleigh/Tyndall) scattering. We investigated the colour,anatomy, nanostructure and biophysics of structurally coloured skin,ramphotheca and podotheca from 31 species...
