Light on lizards

GeckoOur work on interplay between pigmentary and structural color in Phelsuma Geckos has been accepted for publication in BMC Biology (link).

In this paper we show that a precise co-localization of pigments and organized guanine crystal multilayer have a cooperative action in color production. We modeled the reflectivity using a multilayer model including the pigment filtering layer.
