..., skin colour changes, body surface temperature, and evaporative water loss rates were examined under a mixture of field and laboratory conditions to ascertain whether changes in skin reflectivity play an important role in this animal's thermal and hydric balance. Field data demonstrated a tight...

...Lydia M. Mäthger; Toby F. T. Collins; Pedro A. Lima SUMMARY In this paper we describe changes in spectral reflectivity of the light reflectors (iridophores) of the squid Alloteuthis subulata . The spectral changes that can be seen in living squid, can also be brought about by superfusing whole...
