RE: POLYCHROMATIC BOTANY // Foliar coloring as a protection strategy

in #steemstem2 years ago (edited)

Greetings @alexander.alexis, thanks for visiting the blog. It is not so farfetched, that these chromatic patterns in human clothing can be interpreted as evolutionary strategies to distract or discourage predators. What is certain is that within the animal kingdom these evolutionary responses, of dressing with bright colors, among these; the yellow, black and fuchsia, is a strategy used by insects and is interpreted as a defensive mechanism to scare off their potential predators, however, in the case of us humans, the main reason why we use different colors in our clothing , is related to tactics of attraction to establish approach to individuals of the opposite sex.
