If it is colourful, camouflaged or simply has eyes, chances are that someone in the group may well get involved.

he interests of the Marshall group often lead our researchers away from the lab’s model marine animals and into other exciting research areas where key concepts are applied to a diverse range of questions, applications and animals. For example researchers from the group have looked at colour communication and retinal neurophysiology in birds, how jellyfish see, how spiders find the right rock to hide under and the evolutionary impact of body colour in lizards.
