Data from: Pattern edges improve predator learning of aposematic signals

Naomi F. Green, Holly H. Urquhart, Cedric P. Van Den Berg, N. Justin Marshall & Karen L. Cheney
Edges are salient visual cues created by abrupt changes in luminance and color, and are crucial in perceptual tasks such as motion detection and object recognition. Disruptively colored animals exploit edge detection mechanisms to obscure their body outline and/or to conceal themselves against their background. Conversely, aposematic species may use contrasting patterns with well-defined edges to create highly salient, memorable warning signals. In this study, we investigated how the amount of internal pattern edge, colored...
