In this symposium speakers will cover a range of topics that highlight the extraordinary nature of colour and vision in molluscs.

Many Mollusca species are brightly coloured and patterned and yet nearly all molluscs are thought to be colour blind.

Despite their limitations with colour vision, molluscs showcase a myriad of different eye types, many of which are unique in the animal kingdom. 

The phylum Mollusca is highly speciose and is the largest phylum in the marine realm. 

The Natural History Museum and the Malacological Society of London are hosting the symposium.
