Photosynthesis in plants and vision in animals are the most obvious manifestations of photobiology.  However, a huge number of other organisms make use of light in many other ways.  In some cases organisms have developed a means to sense light, to exploit the benefits and avoid the dangers of sunlight. Alternatively other use light as a means of signalling. In this presentation we will look at a few of these less obvious examples of photobiology, investigate the mechanism by which they make use of light, and suggest some ways in which humans might recruit and exploit these phenomena.

Parking is available on-site; there maybe a small local charge.
