Seeing Nemo: Investigating clownfish vision

Mr Laurie Mitchell (PhD candidate, University of Queensland)
What do we know about the highly visual lives of reef fish? Can we find out more by using clownfish as a model reef fish to investigate the genetic-underpinning and behaviour of colour vision? Dive in to explore the answers to these colourful questions.
