New paper out from the lab today -
Separate polarisation and brightness channels give crabs the edge over predators
A study from the lab discovering how fiddler crabs are sensitive to the polarisation of light and how they process intensity and polarisation in parallel to give them the edge when it comes to spotting potential threats.
