Pollination

pollination

To transfer pollen from an anther to a stigma

stigma

anther


Orchid bees are both beautiful and good pollinators

Orchid bees are both beautiful and good pollinators.


Aposematic coloration

Aposematic coloration

conspicuous coloration or markings of an animal serving to warn off predators

If an animal has a dull back and bright undersides, the Unken Reflex may be used. They flash the bright colors, and frighten the predator.


Crypsis

Crypsis

Camouflage; blending in with surroundings

Value of countershading

VALUE OF COUNTERSHADING

  • Many aquatic/marine animals are dark on top and light on the bottom. This is so predators approaching from the top see a dark back against a dark background, and predators from below see a light venter against a light sky.


Mimicry

mimicry

the resemblance of an animal species to another species or to natural objects; provides concealment and protection from predators


Types of mimicry

TYPES OF MIMICRY

  • Batesian mimicry: The model is poisonous/venomous, and the mimic is harmless.

  • Müllerian mimicry: The model is poisonous/venomous, and the mimic is, too.
