1. Color variation is one of the most obvious examples of variation in nature, but biologically meaningful quantification and interpretation of variation in color and complex patterns is challenging. Many current methods for assessing variation in color patterns classify color patterns using categorical measures, provide aggregate measures that ignore spatial pattern, or both, losing potentially important aspects of color pattern. 2. Here, we present Colormesh, a novel method for analyzing complex color patterns that offers...
