Signal systems in nature

The question about how animals have evolved warning coloration to signal unprofitability to potential predators has been debated for over 150 years. Using chickens, researchers at the Department of Zoology have shown that a psychological mechanism in the signal receiver can drive the evolutionary process towards warning signals, and this could be relevant also for other signal systems in nature.
