Title Spectral Reflectance and Irradiance Data
Downloaded 35 times
Description Spectral reflectance of the throat, dorsum, head, bright neck coloration and dark lateral stripe of male tawny dragon lizards, and predominant background colours. Each column is the reflectance of a given colour patch averaged across three measurements. Reflectance data were smoothed by averaging over each 5nm interval within the range 300–700nm (visual spectrum of birds and most diurnal lizards), and the mean irradiance across all sites was normalised to a maximum of one. Note that mean reflectance of backgrounds were used in subsequent analyses.

Title Visual Contrast Data
Downloaded 29 times
Description Chromatic and achromatic contrasts of lizard colour patches against predominant backgrounds, and the internal contrast between constituent throat colour patches. Contrasts are from the perspective of conspecific lizards, likely predators (birds), or both.
