Adriana Briscoe, a professor of biology and ecology at UC Irvine, research imaginative and prescient in butterflies. Seems, butterflies are actually cool. As an example, they are often educated to detect mild of a sure coloration — which she’s accomplished as a part of her analysis.

Adriana additionally solutions questions you would possibly’ve by no means thought to ask like: Why they bask within the daylight? And why do a few of them have ‘hearts’ of their wings?

Plus, you will by no means guess the place their photoreceptors are.

We additionally focus on the significance of academics and mentors in diversifying the STEM fields, which Adriana has written about.
