Join Dr. Noam Josef, Mote Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Anne-Marie Russell, Executive Director of Sarasota Museum of Art, for their lecture titled, "The Art and Science of Camouflage."
The history of camouflage as visual strategy is a fascinating aspect of the history of art. The science of camouflage as an evolutionary strategy in the natural world is an equally fascinating aspect of natural history. Join Anne-Marie Russell and Dr. Noam Josef for an entertaining and informative tour of camouflage among both human and non-human animals.
Dr. Josef studies the camouflage capabilities of cephalopods: octopuses, squid, cuttlefish and related species. He joined Mote last Spring to develop algorithms for predicting camouflage patterns in cephalopods and will also study how octopuses interact with the local stone crab population.
