About this product
- DescriptionThe natural world is not a harmonious place. In the fight to survive and reproduce, any advantage in getting a mate, finding food, or avoiding predators pays dividends. Martin Stevens explores how animals and plants trick, cheat, and deceive each other to their own advantage in their bid for survival.
- Author BiographyMartin Stevens is Associate Professor of Sensory and Evolutionary Ecology based in the Centre for Ecology and Conservation, University of Exeter. His research focuses on sensory ecology and behaviour, especially animal coloration and vision. He studies a wide range of animals, including fish, reptiles, birds, insects, crabs, and primates. Martin's work has frequently covered topics related to deception, including mimicry by brood parasites and anti-predator coloration, including camouflage, eyespots, and mimicry. He undertook his PhD at the University of Bristol on animal camouflage and bird vision, before spending seven years as a research fellow in the Department of Zoology at the University of Cambridge. He moved to Exeter University in early 2013. Martin has published over 70 scientific manuscripts, in addition to two textbooks, including a recent one on sensory ecology and behaviour. His research is frequently covered in the media.
