Abstract

Christopher Hemingson studied the processes that shape the various colours and patterns found in coral reef fishes. He demonstrated that numerous factors influence fish colouration, with evolutionary history, morphology, ecology, and reef health all playing a part. Importantly, this thesis identified new ways of thinking about and analysing colouration.
